If someone out there has the knowhow to quickly write up an applescript for me to do one simple task I would be forever in your debt. All it needs to do is change the filename of files added to a folder. ( i know how to add the folder action, just not sure how to write the script :/ ) So it can either do one of the two following: Take the parent folders name and add that text to the filename just before the extension. Ex. FOLDERX>abcdefg.mov would become FOLDERX>abcdefg_FOLDERX.mov or Just one where if files are added the text is simply added before the extension. so ABCDEFG.mov would become ABCDEFG_ADDTEXT.mov the one caveat is that it needs to be set up to be used as a folder action and not having to be manually run every time I add files. Thanks oodles. the promise of beer is in your future.
