I typically shoot an object 3-4 nights in mono. This leads to a ton of folders and files as you have to load each channel, from each session, plus flats for each channel and session. Not only is this very time consuming and tedious but one mistake selecting the wrong channel or wrong session number and you've botched your entire integration.

I suggest (as an option) automatic loading of data based on a set file folder structure. If you organize your files a specific way with specific folder names, APP should be able to load the entire data set at once by picking the top level folder. It looks at the names of the folders and understands which session and channel each folder of data contains.

I would suggest this folder structure or something similar:

Session 1
Light
Luminance
Red
Green
Blue
Flat
Luminance
Red
Green
Blue
Dark
Bias
Session 2
Light
Luminance
Red
Green
Blue
Flat
Luminance
Red
Green
Blue
Dark
Bias
All Sessions
Dark
Bias

This indeed has been a request and something will likely made easier in this regard, I don't know about the specifics though. Thanks a lot for the suggestion!
