I'm wondering is there any solution out there for making a custom render output corresponding to a certain output path?

Let me explain it a bit. I always need to render 1920*1080 .mov format and a Tiff sequence for a scene. Thus I have made 2 custom output templates called MOV720 and Tiff1920. And I really need a solution to make the mov format files always go into my D:mov folder and those tiff sequences always go into my E:tif folder, plus create a folder named by my scene name.

If there's 2000+ of the scenes that needs to be rendered out in this way, it's really tedious to click and save every output to those folders(especially those tiff sequences, I need to create the folders in advance)...Any suggestion or script thing may do that for me? Appreciate it in advance!

Half-way solution: check out Christopher Green's Consolidate Sequence Renders script [link]. If it works out for you, I'd suggest you consider encouraging his development efforts with a reasonable donation.

Alan Eddie's Intellifolders script [link] might be another option, but I've never used it.

If all else fails, you might be able to hire one of these gentlemen to modify their scripts for your specific need.
