batch exporting multiple files - Macromedia Fireworks

I have not found anything via search, or doentation, but it is 2:30 am, so i may not be awake :). Anyway, im trying to have the batch process export two files, idealy in two different folders, but i could just do it w/ different names, then batch rename. This is the folder structure: /image/org -- this hold the original images /image/thumb -- will hold a thumb of it /image/large -- will hold a large version. what i am trying: resize org to 800x600 rename w/ file name ended w/ .l (so files will come out img_0001.l.jpg) export resize again ...

    Default batch exporting multiple files

    I have not found anything via search, or doentation, but it is 2:30 am, so i may not be awake :).

    Anyway, im trying to have the batch process export two files, idealy in two different folders, but i could just do it w/ different names, then batch rename.

    This is the folder structure:

    /image/org -- this hold the original images
    /image/thumb -- will hold a thumb of it
    /image/large -- will hold a large version.

    what i am trying:
    resize org to 800x600
    rename w/ file name ended w/ .l (so files will come out img_0001.l.jpg)
    export
    resize again
    rename to thumb ending in .t (so files will come out img_0001.t.jpg)
    export

    but htis dosnt work. any ideas?the perfecto solution would work on two tiers,

    /image/shoot1/org
    /image/shoot1/large
    /image/shoot1/thumb

    /image/shoot2/org
    /image/shoot2/large
    /image/shoot2/thumb

    /image/shoot3/org
    /image/shoot3/large
    /image/shoot3/thumb
    all in one pass.

    Are you trying to export both files in the same batch operation? What,
    exactly, isn't working? Are no files being exported? Only one file? Is
    either file location working out?

    neither file is exporting, just the one when the file is done w/ the script(the page after you choose what you want to have done w/ the org file).

    Ill upload my script as soon as im done batching today's files (700+ files in 5 folders). Im doing them a single file per pass right now. Id love to just run this over night instead of in the background while working.

    Hi again:

    I am not sure what I'll be able to do to help, but I thought more
    clarification of your actual problem would be a good idea.

    The Batch process feature doesn't allow you to pull from multiple folders,
    although it will let you access a folder AND what is currently open in FW at
    the time of the batching. Also, this feature will not allow for multiple
    variations of the same command. Meaning I can't include - for example -
    "rename" more than once in the batch operation.

    The Project Log - which is not available in the latest release, MAY have
    been the solution, but I never really used it much to begin with, so I can't
    say with any certainty.

    Specific batch editing software might be more along what you need.
