Suppose there is a folder containing already renamed files to:

Crash Canyon 1.avi
Crash Canyon 2.avi
Crash Canyon 3.avi
Crash Canyon 4.avi

Die Simpsons 1.avi
Die Simpsons 2.avi
Die Simpsons 3.avi
Die Simpsons 4.avi
Die Simpsons 5.avi
Die Simpsons 6.avi

Futurama 1.avi
Futurama 2.avi
Futurama 3.avi
Futurama 4.avi

And there are periodically or none periodically added new files (series like above, Simpons, Futurama etc.) like:

Die_Simpsons_12.07.17_17-10_orf1_20_TVOON_DE.mpg.avi
Die_Simpsons_12.07.17_17-10_orf1_20_TVOON_DE.mpg.avi
Die_Simpsons_12.07.17_17-10_orf1_20_TVOON_DE.mpg.avi

Roseanne_12.07.17_17-10_orf1_20_TVOON_DE.mpg.avi
Roseanne_12.07.17_17-10_orf1_20_TVOON_DE.mpg.avi

and so on.

After adding these files you want to rename them to file names like the already in this folder existing ones (Futurama 1.avi, Futurama 1.avi, Die Simpsons 1.avi, Die Simpsons 2.avi and so on)

And you want the enumerating (of the new files) be continued from where the last number of each series group, it would be like that:

Crash Canyon 1.avi
Crash Canyon 2.avi
Crash Canyon 3.avi
Crash Canyon 4.avi

Die Simpsons 1.avi
Die Simpsons 2.avi
Die Simpsons 3.avi
Die Simpsons 4.avi
Die Simpsons 5.avi
Die Simpsons 6.avi
Die Simpsons 7.avi
Die Simpsons 8.avi
Die Simpsons 9.avi

Roseanne 1.avi
Roseanne 2.avi

Futurama 1.avi
Futurama 2.avi
Futurama 3.avi
Futurama 4.avi

Is it possible to create such a renaming?

If the methods does not change a name of a file, it is simply ignored on start batch. This means that if you are removing a certain pattern and the already renamed files don't have this pattern, they won't get renamed but the new files will.

It seems, as if doing it is not possible with the functions users without any idea of scripting / coding like me are able to do it, e.g. the enumeration always is added to each of the files.

If you are adding extra parts to the filenames you are right that the renamed files will get renamed again. I thought you were removing patterns from the filenames. I don't think what you want to do is possible. You need to add only the files you want to rename.

Yes, that is right, but I do not get it working to continue numbering on from the number of the already existing files.

<<<You need to add only the files you want to rename.
Yes, but then I would have to always set each of the numbers to be enumerated from.

And when I switch in the mode "Renumber" to no padding I would expect the zeros in the file names to be disappear, but that does not happen, what am I doing wrong?
