Applescript help: color labels of files upon download
Hello, I'm trying to figure out how I can create an applescript that changes the color of a movie file upon download to a series of nested folders, and then removes the color label upon opening.
In simple terms:
Upon download, movie file is automatically placed in:
Show Title folder
Applescript notices new movie file in folder / subfolder
set color label of movie file to orange
when movie file is opened, script removes color label.
Is this even possible?
Thanks for the help.

How about a script for changing a color label when a file has been opened? Is this possible?

A folder action created in Applescript or Automator would do the first part.
on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving these_items -- insert actions here -- Put logic into script to move files to desired location and attach color labels to files based on name extension or something else. -- insert actions here end adding folder items to
For the other part perhaps you can use the value of the kMDItemLastUsedDate attribute of the mdls command and work with that(see attached tumbnail). For more information on the mdls command --> In Terminal :
