Use tag data to formulate new file name for selected tracks' files

This script will rename the files of the selected tracks (or the files of the tracks in the selected playlist) with a filename pattern that is formulated using the tracks' tag data. Optionally, export a copy of the files to a chosen location and rename the files in that location.

For OS 10.7 or later. Previous PPC-era version available by direct download link in the "Info" section below.
