DIT Folder Structure

While I was waiting on some people to get back to me for a checkout for an upcoming TV show I decided to put together a little program to help with creating default folder structures that I typically use, so now I’m making that available to everyone else as well!

Here’s how it works:

You double click the icon, and it will ask you for a day.  I tend to use the date in the fashion of year, month, day, but you can modify it to be whatever you want, such as DAY01, DAY25, etc.

It will default to the desktop, so you should choose where you want this to go by hitting OTHER and then pointing to what destination you want the folder structure to populate.

Then it will ask you for a camera name.

Such as the F55, Epic, Alexa, etc.

Once you hit continue, it will automatically populate all the folder structures and all that jazz

And that’s it! You can find the link for the program here.

  1. Thanks for posing this. It can save a lot of time setting up a file structure job to job, but is there a way to allow multiple camera work flow. For example; your file structure sets up DATE as main folder and has breakdown folders from there. Can I edit this script to have
    “DATE” >
    • ADMIN>
    • MEDIA>

    and then under “A-CAM, B-CAM, C-CAM” what ever you decide to name the cameras then have all the sub folders?



    1. Hey – this is many years late obviously! But Charlie do you know how to edit your very useful workflow? Thanks for coding it, I use it but I’d love to modify the folder structure slightly. I can’t seem to open it in Automator as I would expect to be able to. Thanks! Davo
