Post Workflow action

Hi,

I want to enhance my workflow when rating new audio tracks.
Is it possible to make an action which

1) Plays the selected audiofile (should be able to fast forward in the track)
2) Waits for input
3) I press 1 to 5 for input to rating field
4) save
5) next track
6) repeat until last track.

Well I don't say this too often but "you can't do this in an action". However, you can do it in the UI with a minimum number of keystrokes.

Before you start, in Preferences - General, enable the 'Update preview on selection changes' option.

Now set up a few keyboard shortcuts in Preferences - Shortcuts. Navigate Up and Down should be preset to Command - up arrow and command down arrow. If not you can set them to whatever you'd like. Now in Preferences-ShortCuts-Edit-Edit Rating Values assign Command-0 through Command-5 to the rating values.

Here's the workflow.

1) load the tracks you want to rate
2) select the first track
3) hit the spacebar. A preview window will open and start playing
4) give the focus back to Yate
5) hit Command 0 through Command 5 to rate the track
6) hit Command Down to move to the next track. The preview window will play the selection.
7) repeat 5 and 6
8) hit spacebar to remove the preview window or close it
9) Save from the toolbar or File menu to save all changes

If the Info panel is displayed, you'll see the ratings change.
