NameChanger is a quick and easy way to bulk rename files on OSX. But it took a bit of trial and error for me to figure out how to use back references when I wanted to use a regular expression. This brand of regex syntax uses $.

Quick howto:

  1. select and drag some files into the left pane
  2. eg file: 301 - some.show.name.avi -> Some.Show.s3e01.avi
  3. left box: ^(\d)(\d\d).*, middle box: regular expression, right box: Some.Show.s$1e$2.avi
  4. click the rename button
