Hi,

I 'm new to the community and scripting so I'm not sure if a script is needed or there is a possibility with templates to this.
And second, I'm also interested in scripting myself but if someone says it's easy I can do this feel free to write me.

Now to the problem:
I am doing a lot of timelapse projects. The steps are Making a folder for a timlapse - copying the raw images - importing them in LRTimlapse - export them through Lightroom - into the subfolder jpegs - import them in AE - make a comp - make a copy of the original comp - adjust the comp2 name to the folder name- adjust the comp 2 size to 4k - adjust the layer of comp1 to the size of comp 2 - save the project with the folders name

folder structure:
-timelapse project
-timelapse1
-1.raw
-2.raw
-....
-jpegs
-1.jpeg
-2.jpeg
-....
-timelapse1.aep
-timelapse2
-1.raw
-2.raw
-....
-jpegs
-1.jpeg
-2.jpeg
-....
-timelapse2.aep
-.........

the Goal:
my goal would be to tell after effects, I have a project, go through the subfolders, make an AE-project for each folder with the corresponding jpegs and organice the comps.


hope you understand my problem =D
I'm open to all suggestions, if there is already a plugin, or a script. Or you say it can't be solved with a script....

Thank you,
Max :D
