use a GUI file renamer?
Authored by: osxpounder on Mar 20, '03 04:47:11PM

I apologize in advance if I misunderstood the point, but it seems to me that if ease and simplicity are valuable to you, you might want to try FileRenamer.

I checked MacUpdate a minute ago, and it was still available. Apparently the authors' site is down, and it seems not to have been finished, but it works... and I use it. It lets you select a folder with files to be renamed [and that's 1 difference I see now between this and your CLI suggestions], offers some useful options such as appending or prepending sequential numbers, and it previews changes before committing. I use it to rename 100s of TGA files rendered from a 3D app so that they will sequence properly when I load them into QuickTime.

Hope this helps,
