Hey there, I am looking for the script to open the containing folder after export.
The links to the scripts on the forum are not working anymore. I guess they are pointing to a link from the old forum.
The scripts I found in text form do not work properly unfortunately. So has anyone a working one (for windows)?
This one opens the folder where audioExportDescription.xml is located, so it is of no use
In this case, you don’t need the exe we built. This would mean that the opening would be handled by whatever you put there, and it has to be exact. In our version it uses your default file browser, whatever it is, so no need for paths etc.
tbh it was something we did quite a long time ago, so my memory of the reasoning is a little vague.
My questions; where do these scripts actually live and secondly, is it a (simple) case of adding a new one to what is there.? My wish is that I could create a new one by editing in the correct paths, to an existing script… crossed_fingers:
If memory serves, I think Phil and I created this little .exe so that all the files you push from Cubando will show in a single file browser window. Also, if the target folder is already open somewhere in the background, it will only bring it into focus instead of opening the same folder in more and more file browser windows/instances.
After a little fiddling, (finally learnt to ‘Save As…’ an *.aepp file instead of a *.txt file from NotePad.!) all advice - plus helpful attachments - got me up and running great. Shutter Encoder launches with the Exported audio loaded as desired. Also, the ‘Open File Location’ script working a treat too.
I had to source an Icon for the app (which took a few attempts to get the right pixel size - I found 32 x 32 a little too big for my taste). Then saved, renamed and inserted necessary/replaced path strings as you see above. All good.!
Icon file placed in the same Root folder.
And once more, if you’re editing in NotePad make sure to ‘Save As…’ with full name including *.aepp file format (use the drop-down for file type to show ‘All Files’ - otherwise you’ll still end up with a *.txt extension).
Even though it has been several months since this thread was active I add a link to my reply to the same question in another thread for future readers.
The offered solution will open the Explorer in the folder chosen for the export. It requires no .exe but a small batch file, which is included in the zip package.
The .aepp file looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Description>Open in Explorer</Description>
<Path>C:\ProgramData\Steinberg\Audio Export Post Process Scripts\openexplorer.cmd</Path>
