Exclude Folder(s) on DrillDown

We shoot dual-Codec on a number of our projects so we end up with identically named files in 2K and 4K.  We also shoot other B-roll and sound files and folder them alongside our 2K and 4K assets.  Turning on Drilldown is really nice EXCEPT it would be good to be able to click on the 2K folder and remove it from the drilldown. 

Since the files are identically named, it is easy to pick the wrong one and insert markers and metadata which then have to be manually inserted into the correct one.  This is painful unless you implement my other idea of either Linking media as duplicate or adding a copy/paste metadata option.

Kyno 1.7 will sport a folder name filter that should do exactly what you need

I too am trying to use the Filter to remove sub-folders in the Drill Down, but cannot make it work. 

Where the Containing Folder (is not) (Folder Name)   - does not seem to do anything.

Any instruction on how to remove the contents of a specific folder from the list would be helpful. 

Hi Jim, could it be that you expect it work on any parent folder? Currently it only looks for the immediate parent folder. We should look at making that more flexible

Sorry, I didn't test correctly. You're right, the "any parent" "is not" option does not work as advertized. We'll fix it
