This is essentially a repost of a similar topic that "Sinjun" was trying to get an answer for:
We are trying to find a way to essentially duplicate your disk (or catalogue) folder structure into sets so that persons using the media viewer program could find images using the sets (since the media viewer program does not allow you to see the catalogue structure). I can't imagine that there are not more people out there with the same need. My office is a 4 person Architect office. Each project is based on year then number (0514 for the 14th project of 2005 for instance). Within each project folder are subfolders for things like drawings, correspondence, images, etc. Within each images folder, are subfolders that are grouped by Site, 3d Model, and Design Ideas. Everytime we create new images, we simply create a folder within one of those image folers and name it after the date (05-0409 for today's date for instance). It was a piece of cake to set up the catalogue folder structure in iview. I just "found all" on the OS, and selected all my image folders and dragged them into iview. That was absolutely painless. The problem is getting further than that. I am the only person that can access that information unless I create sets based on the catalogue folder structure, so that the other members of the office could use the image viewer program. I am not all too willing to employ someone about 10 hours to simply manually create our entire folder structure database into iview sets, and than drag the images from each catalogue folder to it's corresponding set folder. I refuse to believe there is not a simpler solution out there, and that this is not a basic feature NEED of many small offices that use images significantly in their workflow. We just purchased iView, and I was very excited about it. We were using iphoto and iphoto library manager to do the same thing, but iphoto 5 killed that process. (it was a bandaid process as it was, but worked for the time being). iView seems like the perfect program for us after doing much research, but I am supremely disappointed by this missing feature. If anyone comes across a script or process that will automatically convert the catalogue folder structure into sets, PLEASE POST. I thank everyone in advance for reading this and bearing with my long post.

Hi,

I remmeber redading a post about a scirpt made by a french user f IView

Those scripts were written by Daniel Robillard and posted here but the "jeux de dossiers" (Sets from Folders) seems to be missing. You can download it by scrolling to the bottom of this page.

I'm ready to drop back to 2.6. The feature that I NEED is to view the folder structure in the viewer. Which this script seemed to fix. However, it doesn't work for me in V3.0.1 Installs fine but crashes as soon as the script is run.

Has anyone had any luck with this script or anything that does the same thing in v3????

thanx

I have luck in a basic sense. The script works for me just fine as long as the folder I am creating a set of is not already a set. After the folder is a set, if I update it and run the script "Jeaux de Dossiers", all of the images are copied into the set that is at the bottom of the list. The way the script used to work is that it would remember the hierarchy of the folders you were creating sets of, and would just update them whenever you ran the script. This is a real pain. That script was a life saver for us. I wonder if it will get updated to run in v3.
