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.

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 :
