I believe this is a somewhat trivial request, but it would be helpful.
The WaveLab 9 batch processing feature available at File > Tools > Batch Conversion already has the capability to drag in a folder and “Include subfolders.”
However, it requires a single destination folder to be selected, and all the output is flattened into one output directory which forces the user to have to manually organize later.
I have projects where I need to preserve 5-6 layers of hierarchy with hundreds (sometimes thousands) of files and manually recreating the structure is untenable.
Here’s what I’d like to see in this feature:
- The option to simply output the batched files in the same location as the originals. If I drag in a folder and include subfolders,then select “Output to source directory(ies)”, the files are simply placed alongside the originals in the source folders.
- The option to output to a new folder (as you have now) but to preserve original hierarchy. In this case, the files would be placed in an alternate folder from the source folder, but all the files would be put into the same hierarchy as the original.
This would be helpful, and I don’t think the technical requirements are high on this.
