Use custom File Name Templates to put renders in new folder.

What I want to do is make the File Name Templates window automatically place renders in a sub-folder using the comp name.

[compName].[fileExtension]

... is what I have at the moment.
What I want is...

[compName]/[compName].[fileExtension]

Where the slash / means make a folder called [compName] and put renders called [compName].[fileExtension] inside it.
But After Effects won't accept the slash character and converts it to an underscore _. This functionality is possible in other applications and seems useful, at least to me. I do a lot of rendering as frame sequences. Being able to automatically create sub-folders would save a lot of clicking.

Anybody out there know how to do this or if it's even possible?

Thanks

I bet there's a script somewhere that can do the trick for you. Try AE Enhancers for starters, then look at other sites.
