Hello,
I don't know anything about programming or the scripts at Advanced Renamer (or in general), but...

I would like to do as described above. Use the <ExifTool:FileName> of my pictures and videos to change the <ExifTool:DateTimeOriginal>.
The files are named according to the scheme <Year><Month><Day>_<Hour><Minute><Second>. jpg.

For example: 20171119_165711. jpg

Thank you for your support and help in advance.

Sorry, I meant the thread title,
The name should not be changed. Just the ExifDate should be changed based on the filename.

Example:
//filename: 20171119_194001.jpg
//Exifdate: 19.11.2017 19:40:01

Thanks for quick response.

See, Advanced Renamer is a tool to modify the file name.
Therefore it can read and utilize the EXIF data.

To modify the files content, f.ex. the EXIF data, you have to use another tool.
There are EXIF tools with a GUI also, even one for the exiftool.exe, see there forum or ask Google.
