Renaming Multiple Files (on a Mac)

By February 24, 2011post, resources

I have forever wondered how to rename multiple video files, but have never taken the time to research it. So now, after looking at two folder titled “untitled folder” & “untitled folder 1” with many, many movie clips in them named “untitled-001” through “untitled-099”, I now found a tutorial on how to rename them all using Apple’s Automator application. And you can even save your workflow to do the same batch renaming again for another project.

Below is a pic of what I am looking at when batch capturing video footage.

So check out this tutorial below. This is so cool, because now I can rename them whatever I want, and even number them in whatever order I need too.
