Folder Actions

Similar to Watch Folders and Droplets Folder Actions can be used to process files with iFlicks.

A folder action script might look similar to the following code.

on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items

repeat with this_file in added_items

tell application "iFlicks 2"

-- open file

open this_file

-- adjust settings and start

repeat with this_video in videos

if file of this_video as string is this_file as string then

-- modify settings and metadata

set comment of this_video to "Added by by Watch Folder"

-- start processing

start this_video

end if

end repeat

end tell

end repeat

end adding folder items to

Note: In general it is easier and preferred to use watch folders together with rules to accomplish the same thing.
