My and most other camcorders will start with 0001 every time a new memory card is inserted.



Thus, when importing video files into PD and two memory cards are used, it is likely that two album images with the same file number are next to each other, one from the start of a vacation the other from the end.

Batch renaming the first card to vacation start and the second card to vacation end will put all files into the proper sequence.



The website above will explain the simple details.



I Was not aware that window Explorer could do this.

Very useful! I'm sure a lot of members will benefit from this cool

One thing to be aware of when using the Windows Explorer method (File Explorer in Win10) is this section of the article:

To get started, locate the files you want to rename and place them in the same folder. Use the columns at the top of the list in details view to order the files how you’d like themWindows Explorer will number the files starting from the top at the list.

What they're saying is that if you have the files sorted by size (or anything besides name or date), you'll end up with the clips renamed numerically from top to bottom but in the wrong order for editing! To keep them in the right order, just make sure you've got the clips sorted chronologically before you rename them, otherwise hit <Ctrl>+Z before you make any other changes to undo the rename operation.
