script or automator to create file alias?
on Jan 29, 2008 at 4:57:55 pm

I need to create an automator action or a script that does the following:

I have a list of folders
01
02
03...

Each with a list of contents
01:
file1.dpx
file2.dpx...

Part 1. I need to make an alias inside of each folder of the first file

(folder) 01:
(alias)file1.mov
file1.dpx
file2.dpx...

(folder) 02:
(alias)file1.mov
file1.dpx
file2.dpx...


Part 2. I need to rename the alias to the name of the folder.

(folder) 01:
01.mov
file1.dpx
file2.dpx...

(folder) 02:
02.mov
file1.dpx
file2.dpx...

I know this is doable, but I can't wrap my head around it. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Blase
