### Re: Archive Composition Script

Please forgive me ... this is not working at all (creates files, but does not link to them)

Kind of a basic function? What am I missing here? How to then share basic comps with media?

Strangely, even redirecting Loaders to source file (.psd) does not refresh. Seeing a lot of red.

Thanks!

Hmmm....works just fine for me (on almost a daily basis).

Where do you direct your archive folder to?
So if your comp lives in: X:\myComps\shot01\shot01.comp
do you set the archive to a subfolder of that?
(As in X:\myComps\shot01\Archive01\)?

Try directing it to a folder out of the original structure like
X:\myArchives\Archive01\

Does that change anything?

Glad to hear it actually does work reliably .. Thank you! I will be using it a lot! But until then:

Funny thing is that it would not let me redirect yesterday, ("no such file or directory" even though I just made one) so I let it go and copied the folders and comp copy to another directory manually. The files were there, as was the comp, but they would not read unless I manually linked.

I just did it again, this time (fresher coffee?) it let me redirect to a different location, but ... and here's where it gets interesting ... it copied the new comp copy, and made the folders for the .psd source files, but they were empty.

Mystery! I'll keep trying and report if I discover what I'm botching ...

OH ... one thing .. I just realized that I had secreted the original files into a temp folder to hide them when I was testing the redirected new files ... (faceplant) so that will solve the empty folders issue.
