    Hi,

    I'm new to scripting so not sure if this is possible. I would like a way to change the folder icon a program makes every time I creates a new project file. In my case I use Adobe After Effects and it creates a folder called "Adobe After Effects Auto-Save" every time I create a new project, I would like for the icon to be custom instead of the default Mac OS X folder icon. Right now I just manually change it, but would love a way to make it automated. Just helps me visually when searching for it.

    Is there a way to do this?

    thanks!

    Hello and welcome,

    I don't know of an easy way to accomplish this. We have a few members here that have some knowledge of scripting, so hopefully they will chime in.

    You could always post the same question here:
    MacScripter

    They have a tremendous amount of scripting knowledge and experience over there.
