@Andrea_Paz update:
" the ability to insert subfolders nested inside the folders we create in the Resources window. . As a non-programmer I would have said it was a relatively simple request to implement, since there is already the ability to create folders, but I'm probably wrong. The ability to create subfolders nested within each other allows for optimal source management, much more powerful than what we can do now by creating folders without subfolders. This is a pro feature (called Logging) because it is indispensable for very large projects with dozens or hundreds of files that need to be searched and accessed quickly."

I would love it if CinGG could have this functionality.

Excellent proposal.
It would be very useful for large projects. It would make it easier to find, classify and much clearer.

Oh, now I understand and this would be a nice addition. You can create a folder within a folder already but all of the files have to be in the preceding level also so is not like a directory structure at all. It would be great to have it look like the expanders of the Audio Effects.

Sorry, I explained it wrong. I meant to create a personal folder and within that create several sub(sub)folders:

Although it may be different than what is expected and CinelerraGG philosophy has always been to not copy other people's work (to quote another person, if you like the way it works somewhere else, use that software instead!!) subfolders are available for usage. In Resources window, right click on the Media folder and there is an option to create a folder. It is in section 2.5.2.

But this BT is a good notice to alert other people of subfolders existence.
