Response to: Custom Folder Names, Audio in JPGs?

I agree with you that the movie import function is a big deal in this version. And I think we'll see some refinement from Apple that will make it even better.

From my testing, you can store audio too, as long as there's a video track associated with it. There's more detail about this further down in the talkbacks. It's easy to do, and even kind of fun, to add a Photo-Jpeg track to your audio and have iPhoto catalog it for you. Time to fire up AppleScript!

    Well, I haven't played with audio yet, but I did play with importing folders, and for the life of me I can't get it to work. The help file claims it will create the folder name, and if there are sub-folders, it will create those. There appears to be no other way to create sub-folders other than by importing (am I missing a UI feature somewhere)?

    So I took my "2005" folder, which contains a single folder "01-06 - Winchester, MA - Snowman". Dragged and dropped it on the Library folder (and anywhere else I could think of). I get a temporary folder while it's importing, and then poof, the last sub-folder imported ends up in "Last Roll" and no new folders are created. Very strange.

    Has anyone had any luck creating custom folder names, let alone hierarchical ones?

    One nice thing (maybe this was in 4, but I don't remember it). If you delete everything in Last Roll (Command-Option-Delete) it promptly displays the previous Last Roll.
