How to make this sorting bookmark?

Post by stevewills » Mon Nov 11, 2019 3:42 pm

Love this program, but I have a question.

I (like many) have tons of After Effect templates across many drives, some have videos showing the animation or training video, and others do not.
I would like to see only my After Effect templates (AEP) and the videos (MOV, MP4 etc) that are with those files across all my drives.
How can I restrict the view to only those folders and files that have both MOV's or MP4's with AEP templates?

Appreciate the assist.

That will be tough to accomplish. You will need more than a bookmark, but should be doable (somehow ..)

However, I do not understand this:

My interpretation of this:
1. Search for all *.aep files.
2a. If they have also *.mov / *.mp4 files in the same folder: show all *.aep as well as all *.mov and *.mp4 in that folder.
2b. If there are no *.mov or *.mp4 files in that folder: don't show the aep files.

In the Everything result list you want only aep, mov and mp4 files to be shown.

Correct?

Correct, and thank you for the reply.

Yes, I only want to see the folders that contain both .AEP and .MOV across all drives.

If you only want to see the folders, you can search for:

Code: Select all

child:*.aep   <child:*.mov | child:*.mp4>
But I suspect you also want to see the aep/mov/mp4 files in those folders?
