Command line automation
In this version of Advanced Renamer a special command line executable has been included. This executable (arenc.exe) can execute a batch
represented by a batch method file and a list of files and folders to perform the bacth on, without requiring any user interaction. This
way of performing batches is meant for users with special needs and a high degree of computer experience.
New tags: Video tags
The command line tool can be used as a scheduled job in a server environment or as part of another batch job.
With the new video tags you can add video information to the file name. A large variety of formats and codecs are supported, including
DivX, XviD, WMV, MKV, OGM, and many more.
More image tags
With the new tags you can work with these video and audio information: Width, Height, FrameRate, Duration, Codec, and Bitrate
There has been a need for more EXIF tags when renaming image files.
GPS location tags
The new tags are: Camera make and model, Subject, Title, Aperture, Brightness, Focal length, ISO, Shutter speed, Exposure time and mode,
Contrast, Saturation, Sharpness, and White balance
Many modern digital cameras and smart phone cameras can record GPS coordinates inside the pictures they take. In this version new latitude
and longitude tags can be appended to the file names.
New method: Trim
But numeric coordinates is not very informative. Three new tags can be used to add the city, country, and state to the file names. When these
tags are used, the coordinates are used to lookup the names of the closest cities in an online database.
This is probably the simplest of all the methods. This new method will remove characters present in the text box from the beginning and
the end of file name. Other methods can already handle this job but this methods makes it easier and faster to do.
New method: Renumber
This clever method can detect existing numbers in file name and replace them with new number sequences or adjust the existing numbers.
The method can be used to adjust a sequence of unordered numbered names e.g. 003.txt, 004.txt, 006.txt can be changed to 001.txt, 002.txt, 004.txt.
This task was previously an impossible one with Advanced Renamer.
