How to add date and time to a file name Sat Feb 02, 2019 3:19 pm • by baer
I'm looking for a way to read out the date and time from a file and add it to the filename.

for example:

filename soure: capture0001.mov

result should be: 190202201435_capture0001.mov (file was created on the 02.02.2019 at 20h14m35s)

i tried to use the rename option. But i only can add the date not the specific time the file was created.

How would i achieve that?

If you click on the date token after adding it to your pattern, you'll see the option to edit the format. There you can add the time.
