How to rename bunch of files using another files names?

Postby mineworld » Mon Sep 04, 2017 7:29 am

Guys,

I have 2 folder, in the first one I have a bunch of mp4 files with correct names and unfortunately in second folder I have their subtitles with numeric names. How can I copy names from video files to srt files at once? I never see an option such ""Renaming From A Text File" in the BRU menus.

Code: Select all
1 : Create a Modal Window.mp4  ---> 01.srt
2 : Modify a Modal Window.mp4  ---> 02.srt
.
..
50 : Compile a Directory of file ---> 50.srt

To rename using a text file create a text file and put the old name first then a bar | followed by the new name.

Put each file you want to rename on a new line like shown bellow.

01.srt|Create a Modal Window.srt
02.srt|Modify a Modal Window.srt
03.srt|New File Name.srt
Old File Name.srt|New File Name.srt

In BRU browse to the folder that contains the files to be renamed then from the menu bar select "Actions / Import Rename-Pairs..."
