Make this page better by adding screenshots to Advanced Renamer.
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.
Definitely not a bad piece of software.
Best renaming software available. Completely free.
Thank you Kim Jensen for the best free renaming app ever!
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:
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.
This is my favorite file renaming program. IMO better than renamer and bulk rename utility.
O melhor que encontrei disponível em Português do Brasil.
The best i found available in Brazilian Portuguese.
Complete and free. Excellent!
It has the feature [Move UP/Down] of name files.
After spending some time with ReNamer, i finally fell on Advanced Renamer. I needed a renamer capable of stripping characters at the end of any filename, especially handy for files coming from deviantart website that contain 8 random characters at the end of every downloaded file.
Advanced Renamer is capable of doing that plus many other things, you can make your own presets and save them of course.
Any change can be cancelled even after closing the app, that is definitely a plus.
It also has a right-click context menu "add to Advanced Renamer" which automatically opens the program and adds the files you selected in explorer.
I'm not going to list everything this program does because i'm mainly using this for characters stripping.
All in all, don't hesitate to try it, it's really a good piece of software.
PS : if you don't like the original icon, here is a great one : http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=advanced+renamer#/d3lhonz
Just for the record: ReNamer could have solved this problem easily.
Not the way i wanted to do this. I tried with ReNamer and didn't find a safe way to do it. I much prefer how Advanced Renamer is organized and the extra features it provides ;-)
Assuming ReNamer supports Perl regexes:
Though, honestly, ReNamer is ugly. I like my UI sexy. Advanced Renamer has the best free UI I have seen, is easier to use, and maintains poweruser power.
What you call sexy, i call cluttered and bloated. Can't please everyone i guess.
