I have backed up (ripped) nearly all of my DVD Movies over the years, and most of them follow a naming convention similar to this: - Armageddon (1998) DVDRip XviD AC3.mp4 - American Beauty (1999) DivX MP3.m4v As you can see from the above examples, I initially named the files using a bunch of tech specs in the file name itself (DVDRip; DivX; MP3; etc) I am now trying to figure out a way that I can remove all information between the close parenthesis symbol ")" and the "." symbol of the file extension? To clarify using the example files above, I'd like to rename them to: - Armageddon (1998).mp4 - American Beauty (1999).m4v Does anyone know any way to accomplish something like this? Perhaps with the use of an applescript, or even a third party file renamer such as "A Better Finder Renamer"? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!
