AppleScript "Import" Command

Postby Dave Heap » Sat Jun 25, 2011 2:51 am

Has anyone had any experience with the AppleScript "Import" command in EM2?

From the EM2 AppleScript dictionary.
import v : import a single media file to a catalog
import file specification : file specification
[at location specifier] : the location to import
→ specifier : to the new object(s)

Try as I may, I cannot get the correct form of "file specification". I've tried every form I know of in AppleScript.

Can anyone provide me a worked example?
