Use the console rename command inside a BAT (*.bat) file that is put in the same directory as the files whose names you want changed and then open that BAT file.
For example, I used a BAT file with this text written with notepad:
rename "0_frame_00*.png" "//////////*.png"pause
"0_frame_0001.png" becomes "01.png"
"0_frame_0002.png" becomes "02.png"
More generally, the advantages to using a BAT file over entering commands on the console (command prompt) are:
1. You don't have to navigate to or specify a directory (except in Notepad's Save File).
2. You can more easily edit mistakes because you don't have to retype the part that is correct.
3. The BAT file is a self documenting template for future work therefore you don't have to remember the console commands in detail. Often the BAT file is reusable without modification.
