I have created a workflow in Automator to remove duplicate words from files using “Get Specified Movies” as the input by dragging the .mov files and using the “Rename Finder Items / Find and Replace”. However, I believe there is a limit to the number of actions “Rename Finder Items” that I can add because it takes a really long time to open and stops responding upon opening.
My question is, I have 1000’s of .mov (clips) files that I would like to rename. Is there a script that I can add to my workflow to do all the heavy-lifting?
Here are some examples of my files how they are label and how Im hoping to be labeled if there is a script out there.
Before (Duplicate Name):
After (With Duplicate Name removed):
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
