Picture numbering starting at 0 for each day

I often renumber huge batches of pictures (e.g. from my smartphone, the pictures of a whole year), until now with another batch renamer (but it has some issues so I'm looking for a new one, and advanced renamer looks promising).

I would like the numbering starting from zero for each day.
For the other renamer I wrote a script to do that (it is a little bit complicated).
Can advanced renamer do this by it's own or do i also need to write a script?

Here a example what I mean:
original name new name expected name creation date

Here my script from the other renamer (it's Pascal), can someone help to translate in Java?
var
counter:Integer;
FileDate: TDateTime;
countdate:String;


begin

FileDate := FileTimeModified(FilePath);

if countdate<>DateToStr(FileDate) then counter:=0;

if counter>=1000 then
FileName := 'MOV ' + FormatDateTime(' yyyy.mm.dd', FileDate) + '_' + '' + IntToStr(counter) + WideLowerCase(WideExtractFileExt(FileName));

if (counter<1000) AND (counter>=100) then
FileName := 'MOV ' + FormatDateTime(' yyyy.mm.dd', FileDate) + '_' + '0' + IntToStr(counter) + WideLowerCase(WideExtractFileExt(FileName));

if (counter<100) AND (counter>=10) then
FileName := 'MOV ' + FormatDateTime(' yyyy.mm.dd', FileDate) + '_' + '00' + IntToStr(counter) + WideLowerCase(WideExtractFileExt(FileName));

if counter<10 then
FileName := 'MOV ' + FormatDateTime(' yyyy.mm.dd', FileDate) + '_' + '000' + IntToStr(counter) + WideLowerCase(WideExtractFileExt(FileName));

countdate:=DateToStr(FileDate);
counter:= counter + 1;

end.

You will need to use a script.

I don't understand why you include "new name" and "creation date" columns in your table - I'm assuming here that "expected name" is the result that you are aiming for. I haven't included any error checking - just assuming that all filenames in the List are in the correct format (ie the first 8 characters in each filename are in the format yyyymmdd).

First make sure that your filenames are sorted in ascending order in the List.

Define a variable to keep track of the date from the previous filename and set it to null in the Pre-batch script:

lastDate = "";

Then in the Main script:

date = item.name.slice(0,8);
if (date == lastDate) {
no++;
} else {
lastDate = date;
no = 0;
}
return "DCIM " + date.slice(0,4) + "." + date.slice(4,6) + "." + date.slice(6,8) + "_"
+ ("000" + no).slice(-4);
