Hi guys,

I've been using this site for a while, but this is my first post so please bare with me!

I have a .txt file containing a list of over 1000 .mov filenames. These files are located in a directory containing over 25000 movies.

I want to create an applescript that will use the text file to batch search for the .mov files, and then copy them to a new directory.

QUOTE Thanks
