Not only is this a great utility for renaming - I find it has very advanced renaming methods, but also is quite easy to use. The interface is nice, and makes sense imho.

I wanted to say for the odd times I had trouble coming up with a unique solution for renaming a certain type of file, the community is fantastic! There is lots of information on the website, but the forum:

https://www.advancedrenamer.com/forum

is where you will find lots of friendly people willing to help with some of the more advanced scripting techniques.

This is my favorite renaming software for all of these various reasons.

With this app, you can perform virtually all types of file renaming, with filter functions when loading and post-loading files to be renamed. It also presents, in real time, and before the renaming, the modifications to the files and, even if they are later renamed, there is an "undo" function to reverse the action.

NB: To get the most out of this app, you should learn to use the capabilities of using "regular expressions" (RegEx) (there's a little syntax help built into the app itself!).

Advertised as free - but it shows "NOT REGISTERED" in it's window top bar. Also, after using it some time, maybe after 10 launches, it showed a popup "consider donating". So Advanced Renamer is free, but has nagware features.

UI is a bit cluttered, and it's also slower than for example, Bulk Rename Utility. Dragging 100+ video files makes it show "analyzing" for some seconds, where as BRU this is instant.

Also, UX might be better. Renaming takes several clicks, first you have to click "Start Batch" button in the upper right corner, then a popup appears in the middle of window, and then you'll have to click Start, which also has a Cancel button on it's right side... not a nice pattern, if you repeat this many times often. I didn't find an option to disable the popup - although I didn't search too much either.

Version: 3.83

Plusses:

  • Free
  • Can rename both files and folders
  • Can create custom tasks that can be saved for later use (add prefix, change case etc)

Minuses:

  • Nagware features
  • Slightly messy UI, UX could be way better with small layout tweaks

Definitely not a bad piece of software.
