Hi there folks, so I have a strange issue: 

 

I like a certain folder layout for new projects, so I made my own template project with my desired folder structure, and I import this every time I setup a new project.

 

However not all the folders I create in my template appear when imported into a new project. As you can imagine, there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth, and renting of garments.

 

If you look below at my audio folder for example, it has subfolders 2 and 4 (MSX/Music and MIX/Mixes respectively) but in my original template, my folder structure is 1. VO, 2, MSX, 3, SFX, 4, MIX

I have no idea why Premier decides to leave folders out on import of this template project but I'm hoping the community or Adobe could help solve this. 

 

I also tried stuffing each folder with a single file like a piece of black video or an empty title object (in the template project version), just to see if the folders were being ignored because they're empty, but the results are just arbitrary 😕

 

Thanks In Advance

You have to have at least one file that PrPro "recognizes" in each folder for PrPro to import the folder.   So ... you need to have 'dummy' media in every folder that doesn't already have something in it. Then delete that when you add the proper items to it.   Neil

Thanks for your response Neil, however I've tried this to no avail (see attached). Though I'm using Premier generated files, not external files. I might try that now - using an external jpg or something

Why not in the OS just copy the 'template' project name it as you wish and move it to where you want it and open the project and go...

FML - I just tried using an external but offline file as the 'folder filler' and this time even MORE folders were MIA, like 70% of my folders in the tree just failed to appear.

I swear the harder I try the more this hates me.....

ok, successfully managed to make this work by stuffing a dummy file that is a real external file in every folder - per your suggestion, thank you! 

Dummy file for giggle tax....

I've got a number of templated project setups. All with a short .wav file as the dummy file, and ... never had it not accept the folder. But PrPro can be capable of giving users a "unique" experience. Ahem. (Rarely a good thing ... )
