is there an intelligent way to import already existing big directory structure of photographs (over 2TB) archive into Aperture?


I have my catalogue on a disk created in a way:


date - short shot description (i.e. “2011-02-14 Name Surname (portrait)”)






I would like, when importing “date - short description”, it to become an Aperture Project with the same name and subfolders Originals, Converted, PSD and Final to become Aperture Albums or Folders in that Project.


The only way I found is to create a Project and Albums in that project manually and then import all the pictures from the corresponding folders, one-by-one,  to Aperture’s Albums. I use references only to preserve the current archive structure on a disk as well.


thank you for your time.
