I want to rename my photos according to the following scheme and I have a question if it is possible to change the date formatting of the <ExifTool:CreateDate> as I find "2018_03_28 17_03_02.dng" a bit confusing and prefer "YYYYMMDD-DDMMSS" instead. Or do I have to use <Year Modified:0000> or <Year Created:0000> values for that? With both, I sometimes get wrong date values. That's why i want to use <ExifTool:CreateDate>, since this is really the correct time of when the photo was taken.

Just add a List replace method

Replace: "_" with: <nothing>
Replace: <space> with: "-"
