It's great except it does not support regular expression (regex) that contains lookbehind.

While this app does many things I find Advanced Renamer is more than enough for my needs and much easier to use and learn, I'm just sayin.

i think Bulk Rename Utility is the best free batch renaming utility indeed! appnee.com/bulk-rename-utility/

The interface is daunting, but take an hour or two to learn it, because this program will save you an exponential amount of time beyond that.
I would argue it can't be done "intuitively" because there are so many options built in. I'm sure there must be prettier programs out there, but I would bet those aren't as flexible or useful!

This is a slick program. I like the way you can see in real time how the new file would appear before you actually rename it.

I'm sure this is a good tool from all the positive comments but the UI is very intimidating. A really good UI should not require practice and should not be intimidating. It should be intuitive so that most users can just start using it.
