Hi

I have to manage several Mp4 files from 7 gopros (It's for creating 360 vr files)

First Step :
I copy each sd cards into folders named : Cam01, Cam02....Cam07

Second Step :
I use method for renaming files with date, hour, minute, second and folder name... like

2016-03-28_14-34-23_Cam04.mp4
2016-03-28_14-34-21_Cam06.mp4
2016-03-28_14-34-22_Cam01.mp4
2016-03-28_14-34-20_Cam07.mp4
....
2016-03-28_15-28-45_Cam01.mp4
2016-03-28_15-28-43_Cam04.mp4
2016-03-28_15-28-44_Cam02.mp4
2016-03-28_15-28-43_Cam03.mp4
....

Third step : (my expected goal with a script)
Looking in the index for files with time delay of +- 3 seconds and add Take##_ before..

Example:
Take01_2016-03-28_14-34-23_Cam04.mp4
Take01_2016-03-28_14-34-21_Cam06.mp4
Take01_2016-03-28_14-34-22_Cam01.mp4
Take01_2016-03-28_14-34-20_Cam07.mp4
....
Take02_2016-03-28_15-28-45_Cam01.mp4
Take02_2016-03-28_15-28-43_Cam04.mp4
Take02_2016-03-28_15-28-44_Cam02.mp4
Take02_2016-03-28_15-28-43_Cam03.mp4

Voilà..
I hope someone could help me...please :))
Thanx in advance..

I'm not too sure what you are asking, what index? The gopro outputs a text file with additionnal info on the videos?

if this is reading a text file and based on that information, rename a list of files, I could give it a shot with a python script, compiled or not, your choice

I'll try to help, as long as it's not too long to make

cheers!
