    Scripting to ISIS workspace


    Thinking of writing a shell or powershell script or C++ program to move an existing folder to another folder within an ISIS workspace. Then, create a new folder name and its sub folder in the worskspace weekly. Currenlty, these tasks are done manually in windows explorer after the  ISIS workspace is mounted. Any thoughts if shell or powershell script or C++ progam will be suitable to do? Thanks.

    Re: Scripting to ISIS workspace

    Actually better to do it programmatically. I've wrote a bash script to do just that. Move/Sort/Organize files into 2500 files per folder, then Have Media Composer rebuild pmr and mdb before folder gets renamed with date markers and such. Only "Manual" part here is the pmr and mdb since Avid does not have a utility tool that will rebuild pmr and mdb outside of Media Composer. I've been begging Avid for an external tool or a library that can do that, so far (8 years and counting) no luck.
