OS X :: Create File List And Batch File Renaming?

Aug 10, 2009

So in windows I can create a file list, save it to a text file, and create a .bat file with rename commands for each file. for example:

Rename 000055-060409232023-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000055.jpg
Rename 000056-060409232020-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000056.jpg
Rename 000057-060409232016-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000057.jpg
Rename 000058-060409232012-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000058.jpg
Rename 000059-060409232008-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000059.jpg
Rename 000060-060409232004-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000060.jpg
Rename 000061-060409232001-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000061.jpg
Rename 000062-060409231957-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000062.jpg
Rename 000063-060409231953-CAM1.jpg cal000image0000063.jpg

how do I create a file list and then create a way to batch rename in os x? I know the commands, but I don't know of a way to do it on more than one file at a time. I have found a few renaming apps but they all appear to be focused on just iterating up instead of renaming specific files to a new name.

OS X Mavericks :: 10.9.2 / Create A List Of File Names From A Folder And All Subfolders

Sep 10, 2014

am sure this has been asked very often.

I do not want only the file names of a given folder with its subfolder (mark all and copy to Coda or Text Edit) BUT I also want other attributes like creation date e.g. 

MacBook Air (11-inch Mid 2013), OS X Mavericks (10.9.2), itunes 11.1.4

Applications :: Batch Renaming Files In OSX?

Mar 3, 2004

I've got a whole bunch of photos in various subfolders. Some of these photos have the same relative name (ie same file name but in different folders).

I would like to rename all these files like 000001.ext, 000002.ext etc, independently of file location so I can copy all the files back to one single folder (I can handle that bit in Terminal). There are many sub-folders so I need something recursive.

I've tried Renamer4Mac, but it isn't recursive. Does anyone know of a different app that would work, or even a terminal command/script/binary that would do the trick?

Applications :: File Renaming App That Supports Wildcards?

Jul 25, 2010

I use Name mangler and have no idea how to use it other than with the find & replace, and I would like to use wild cards to identify lists of files that are numerically listed, so it would be easier for me to use wildcards rather than write/use a droplet.

Applications :: ITunes Scripting On Windows (file Renaming)?

Feb 18, 2010

We are looking for a script for iTunes on windows XP.

Something that will allow us to rename the media files on disk from the info in iTunes. And if possible the Artist and Album names aswell.

Since we choose for .wav files we don't have an option for metadata included in the file. Now, we were wondering if we would use the Broadcast Wave format that includes metadata in the file. My guess is that iTunes doesn't support BWF?

On the mac side i suppose there is something like this from [URL]

Software :: IPhoto 6 File Batch Rename?

Feb 12, 2006

I want to make sure that the file names in iPhoto are unique. For some reason, my digital camera was set to reset its file namer to start at IMG_0001 with every roll, so I have several dozen files with the same file names. Within iPhoto, it's generally not a problem, but if I need to work with a group of files outside of iPhoto, copy-dragging a bunch of photos across rolls to a single folder generally bombs out because of the conflicting file names. iPhoto doesn't seem to have any sort of file renamer at all, I can change the title, but that doesn't actually change the file name. I could and will now use the iPhoto exporter because it seems to do the trick, but sometimes that isn't as convenient as selecting a bunch of files and dropping them into my preferred folder.

OS X Server :: Equivalent Of PC Batch File Needed

Aug 10, 2005

I am running two Xservers, one of them, our primary open directory server also hosts a roaming profile folder. I need to create some type of script or program that would allow me to make a daily copy of that folder on the second Xserver. In the PC world, this would be easily done through a batch file, and simply setting it up as a scheduled task, but I am not sure how to go about it in a MAC environment.

OS X Mavericks :: Automator Batch Rename - Removing Type Of File With No Extension

Jun 25, 2014

I've set up an Automator to batch rename files. The renaming works fine. The problem arises when it renames a file which doesn't contain it's extension (a common MacOS practice). Is there some way to make sure it preserves the filetype? For instance, this works fine: 



 And this results in an error: 


Output (file type has been replaced with generic "document" type)

Automator logic, can be viewed here.

OS X :: Hiding File Inside Image File / Unable To Access Hidden File?

Mar 24, 2008

I managed to successfully hide the file: cat picture.jpg hidden.rtf.zip > picture2.jpg

results in a picture (picture2.jpg) that is the size of the sum of picture.jpg and hidden.rtf.zip. I presume this means that I am successfully putting hidden into the picture.I can open picture2.jpg, but I can't figure out a way to access the hidden zip.

OS X :: Using Text Edit File As To-do List?

May 14, 2009

I use a text edit file as a to-do list; however, it doesn't play nice. When I click on its icon, it pops up somewhere other than where I want it. I've tried "Preferences" and TextEdit help on and off line. I can't find any info on it. I'm probably not using the exact words that 'help' would recognize. I've tried saying "Simon Says" too, but that doesn't work either.

OS X :: Way To Create A Link To File?

Aug 18, 2006

I found a utility that allows me to copy a file's location to the clipboard, but is there a way to create a link to a file location? I'd like to be able to send co-workers a link to files or folders on shared servers, so they can just click the link and get to that location in their Finder. I seem to remember doing this with Windows. Can it be done in OS X?

OS X :: Can You Create A File From Within Finder?

Jan 3, 2010

I've had my macbook for a couple of years now and I just figured you couldn't do this, but I might as well ask:

Can you create a file from within finder?

For example, on Windows machines, you can right click in explorer and it goes something like create new > [folder, text file, word doc, etc]. I know that you can add folders, but I'd love to be able to quickly add a new .txt file without having to open TextEdit first (not that it's any faster, just my workflow).

OS X Technologies :: Create A Log File?

Apr 24, 2012

Been up for a while trying to figure this out with no luck. I created an app that will uninstall a program and all of it's files. 

example try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf /Applications/TestFakeApp2"           end try     try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp.plist"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.FakeTestApp2.plist" end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/FakeTestApp*"           end try          try                    do shell script "rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/FakeTestApp" end try 

there are alot more paths to remove but this is just a few for example 

I want to be able to create a log.txt file on the desktop to show what has been removed and or what could not be removed. 

I then tried by creating a text document by using 

do shell script "touch ~/Desktop/test.txt" tell application "Finder" open file ((path to desktop folder as text) & "test.txt") using ((path to applications folder as text) & "TextEdit.app")end tell 

but I don't know what to do next. 

1. Have it check for each file to see if it was deleted or not

2. add it into the test.txt file

3. save the file once done

OS X :: File/Folder List For External Hard Drives?

Dec 30, 2009

My external hard drive suddenly broke on me - the dreaded click of death - and now i am trying to gather as much information as possible about what i had on the drive. I have a slight idea, but i can't really remember everything. So basically what i am wondering, does Mac os x (SL in my case) store some kind of log file (text or similar) with information about what has been moved to external hard drives the past, say, 12 months?

Aperture :: How To List File Paths For All Files In A Project

Sep 6, 2014

I'm running Aperture 3.4.5 on a MacPro mid 2010.  I import by reference into the appropriate project.  The project's file directory is the same as the name of the project.  I.E., screen shots from the Next Issue application are kept in a project called "Next Issue".  The project keeps it's photos in a directory called "Next Issue".   

As needs change files may be moved from one project to another.  This causes a major problem as the files remain in their original location, i.e. are not moved to the directory associated with their new project.  For example, the Next Issue screen shots show up in Photostream.  I move the photos to the "Next Issue" project, but the original file still stays in the photo stream folder on disk. 

The reason this matters is the disk with the pictures is duplicated and then connected to an Oppo media center.  I find files I need on the Oppo by going to the directory associated with the files, i.e. "Next Issue".  Since those files originally were in a photo stream directory  they still reside there.  So unless I can remember thousands of file locations it can't be found on the Oppo, which doesn't have a search function for an externally attached drive. 

I suppose that I could go to each directory, select everything, and do a relocate master.  But after a long night of organizing if I don't remember which projects where changed then that means relocating up to 100 directories and 70,000 files ….
