Include sub folders when selecting source folder?

Post by mikejandreau » Mon Sep 10, 2018 5:12 pm

Is it possible to automatically include subdirectories when selecting a source folder?

It seems like by default only files in the top level are added, but I’d like all video files in all subdirectories to be included too.

It's not possible. There are lots of complications when dealing with multiple directories of files. I chose not to deal with those complications when initially writing batch support and haven't had the motivation to go back and work through the issues to enhance it.

So, just to confirm, when I select a folder as source, it’ll grab any files in the top level only?
