    I have an archive of videos split on 2 drives. Every video has a folder dedicated to it, for project files/resources, thus I can't directly view a clean list of the videos.

    I need a smart folder to give me all these videos. Is there any finder attribute that allows me to search for files inside 2 specific directories (I do not want to work with tagging all the videos manually)?

    Does "Kind" is "Movie" give you a complete list of the videos on an individual drive? If so, you could do that search on each drive and Tag the the results of each drive.

    Alternately, you could give this a shot.

    If I were to use Kind=Movie, it would work, but not straight from the drives (They aren't dedicated to the archives). Having 2 smart folders would give me all the results I need.
