Hello,

I have a batch of photos (~1700) i'd like to rename using:

<ExifTool:CreateDate>_<ExifTool:FileNumber>

If i add all photos at once, after the program parses them, but fails to preview the name. This is how it looks: http://tinyurl.com/k83nha5
After this, if i select any photo that failed and press the "ExifTool..." button, there is no data to show: http://tinyurl.com/m8cwxwc

If i start from scratch but add a smaller number of photos 20-30, it works, and renames them using the tag, no errors given...

Any ideea?

The integration between Advanced Renamer and ExifTool is not 100% good. When using a lot of files it will often fail. Sometimes it helps to reopen Advanced Renamer and try again. It is silly but I have not yet found a perfect solution.
