var newAmt = 1;
if (!app.project) { app.newProject(); }
var myItemCollection = app.project.items;
var myComp = app.project.activeItem;
var myProperty;
function processFolder(theFolder)

for (var j=4; j < 5; j++)
var importOpts = new ImportOptions( new File(theFolder + "aff"+".mp"+j) );
var importImg = app.project.importFile (importOpts);

You mean you want to rename it in the project? The item object, which is the base object for all items in the project panel, has a name attribute which is read/write, so that should just be: = "myName";
