need a script to rename and resort TIF files

5 views (last 30 days)
I have a group of TIF files with serial such as:
Im_000000
Im_000001
Im_000002
Im_000003
Im_000004
and I need to rename and resort them to be as follow
Im_000000.B
Im_000001.A
Im_000001.B
Im_000002.A
Im_000002.B
i use the below script, but it can only to rename the file with A and B without sorting
clear all; clc;
INDIV = 'C:\Users\Desktop\New folder\';
filenames_INDIV = dir(fullfile(INDIV, '*.tif'));
for filenum= 1 : numel(filenames_INDIV);
if rem(filenum,2) == 0
[~, basename] = fileparts(filenames_INDIV(filenum).name);
newname = sprintf('%s_%04d-imgA.tif', basename, filenum(:));
movefile(fullfile(INDIV, filenames_INDIV(filenum).name), fullfile(INDIV, newname));
end
if rem(filenum,2) == 1
[~, basename] = fileparts(filenames_INDIV(filenum).name);
newname = sprintf('%s_%04d-imgB.tif', basename, filenum(end,:));
movefile(fullfile(INDIV, filenames_INDIV(filenum).name), fullfile(INDIV, newname));
end
end

Folder = 'C:\Users\Desktop\New folder\';
Files = dir(fullfile(Folder, '*.tif'));
Keys = {'A', 'B'};
[~, name] = fileparts(Files{1});
name = name(1:find(name == '_', 1, 'last')); % Correct assumption?
for iFile = 1:numel(Files)
newname = sprintf('%s_%06d%s.tif', ...
name, ... % 'Im_07291355_'
ceil((iFile - 1) / 2), ... % '000000', '000001', '000001', ...
Keys{rem(iFile, 2) + 1} ); % 'B' or 'A'
disp(newname) % Try it at forst before uncommenting:
% movefile(fullfile(Folder, Files(iFile).name), fullfile(Folder, newname));
end

I tried the script, but this error apears to me:
>> [~, name] = fileparts(Files{1});
Brace indexing is not supported for variables of this type.
