Moving a file using scripting
on Mar 7, 2013 at 4:33:04 pm

I'm trying to figure out how to move a file after it is rejected. I don't want the original file moved though - just the proxy file.
it was mentioned that I should use a script to do this, but I can't figure out how to have the script point to just the proxy file and not the original.

Any help would be appreciated.

Your answer is in the variables.

CatDV works on paths, and the proxy is in an equivalent path structure. Therefore if you have the path to an asset as a variable and you have the path to the proxy share as an absolute value you can create the path to the proxy through combining variables and the proxy root path.

Contact support, they can easily demonstrate this concept for you on your machine as it's way easier to show than type. It's also very dependent on how you have your proxy mapped so you may have to do some mucking with that if your proxy path mapping is more complex. Hence my reluctance to give you an exact path. It's environmentally dependent.
