Hi
Thx for this app and thx for this forum
i got those 3 types of original file that could be like this
ex
-mypicture_normal.jpg
-my_picture_normal.jpg
-my_pic_ture_normal.jpg

and i got variations of those file
ex
-mypicture_color.jpg
-my_picture_color.jpg
-my_pi_cture_exposure.jpg
-my_picture_exposure.jpg
-mypicture_grading.jpg
etc

i would like to rename those file like this
ex
o_pic_mypicture_a_qqq_2ev_norm_a.jpg
o_pic_mypicture_a_qqq_2ev_expo_a.jpg
o_pic_mypicture_a_qqq_2ev_grade_a.jpg
or
o_pic_my_picture_a_qqq_2ev_norm_a.jpg

or
o_pic_my_pic_ture_a_qqq_2ev_norm_a.jpg

I succeed to add( o_pic_)at the begining and (_a_qqq_2ev_) with the new name command
I succed to rename normal to norm; exposure to expo and grading to grade with list replace command.

Which gave me something like that
ex
o_pic_mypicture_norm_a_qqq_2ev_a.jpg

but i m stuck to split the original name in order to put a part of the original name at the end.

If someone could help it would be very appreciate
Thx in advance
Have a nice We
Tchook

Try this Regular expression in a Rename method:

(.*)(_\w{4})[^_]*$

This will save the first part of the filename in the variable \1 and "_" plus the first four letters of the final word in \2.

If you are unhappy with the abbreviations "colo" and "grad" you already know how to deal with them.

See www.advancedrenamer.com/user_guide/regular_expresions for further information.

Thx a lot for your answer and your time.

i m really not good at using things i dont understand, this why came with this method

in case people got the same problem

ive made a bunch of replace in order to conform, signs, spelling etc
and for the split
for a one word
o_pic_<Word:1>_a_qqq_2ev_<Word:2>
for two words
o_pic_<Word:1>_<Word:2>_a_qqq_2ev_<Word:3>
etc...
which is not really clever but it works.
(me happy me buying license)

Thx again david lee
