    I have been digging around to find a way to use automator with Final Cut Pro X. Once I have exported/shared a file to a folder from FCX I have it open a Automator application that moves the video file to another location. My problem is that I export different codecs and I need the different codecs to go to different locations. Does anyone know of a way to have automator choose a file by its codec?

    Take a look at the mdls and mdfind commands in Terminal.

    In Automator use the Find Finder Items action.

    Note : Tested on Leopard.
