Automating Folders for lots of Renders

Recommended Posts

I'm currently working on a project that has me rendering lots (as many as 96 passes in a single render) of image sequences out of After Effects over and over again and repeatedly creating all the folders required to keep all this data organized is both tedious and a pain in the ass.

 

I'm sure there has to be a way to automate this but don't really know where to begin looking.

 

I'm looking for something like the FOLDER SETUP script Adobe puts out that does basically the same thing in your OS. Sadly for this project I need a Windows XP compatible solution, but I mostly work in OSX so anything would be helpful.

Post Haste is helpful for automatically setting up folder structures and such:

This is PERFECT! thank you.

 

Amusingly enough, a co-worker just finished helping me by writing a python script that does the same thing with an organized .txt file.
