Batch rename RAW + XMP using EXIF

Post by kaie »

Hello,

I want to batch rename a series of RAW files using the date and time from the EXIF data. This works well. Unfortunately XN View does not rename the XMP files accordingly. So all the work in the RAW converter would be lost. What am I doing wrong? Or is that not possible?

Thank your for your response. I tried it, but is doesn't work with XnView MP either.

Yes I have. I think it is because I want to use exif-data for renaming. Since there is no exif-data in the xmp file, XnView can't rename it and just taking the data from the RAW files seems not included. It would rename both RAW and XMP with standard names.
