I'm using this program and it's very useful. Thank you for make the program like this.

I have some suggestions for improve this program. It will be better program if developers accept it.

1. When has a multiple method, later method should consider with last results.(pairing)
If I take a video with Sony Camera, it makes three files.
C001.MP4
C001.MP4.modd
C001.MP4.moff

I want to make it all to YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.

So I made three methods.

(1) Change ".MP4.modd" to ".modd"
(2) Change ".MP4.moff" to ".moff"
(3) Change name to "<Video Date Year><Video Date Month><Video Date Day>_<Video Date Hour><Video Date Min><Video Date Sec>(AX700)"

After do method (1), (2), the filename should be same like below.

C001.MP4
C001.modd
C001.moff

So it will be pair.

And modd, moff file's name will be cahnged to same as MP4 file even if it doesn't have any meta data about date.

But the program makes error because the same filenames cannot be matched as pair file. Because it's not a pair file when start the (1) method but it become a pair file after (2) method. But the program cannot catch it now.

I hope developers solve this problem.

2. "Pair renaming" option should be included under the method.

In same case as 1. I want to change the filename to .MP4.modd again. So I made a 5 methods.

(1) Change ".MP4.modd" to ".modd"
(2) Change ".MP4.moff" to ".moff"
(3) Change name to "<Video Date Year><Video Date Month><Video Date Day>_<Video Date Hour><Video Date Min><Video Date Sec>(AX700)"
(4) Change ".modd" to ".MP4.modd"
(5) Change ".moff" to ".MP4.moff"

But for do (3) method, I should check "Pair renaming" and if I check "Pair renaming", (4), (5) will not work well.

So I think it's better to built "Pair renaming" option in to each method. It will make user to make better methods.

Thank you.
