Is it possible to "collect files" in maya like in After Effects?

Hey, I was wondering if there is a way to collect files in maya like in after effects. I tried the script that is on highend but that one only works if i use the default directory. and i'm not.. 😞

Thanks

Old post - but thought I'd point this out for future reference...

You can package files related to the current scene into a zip file with the Archive Scene command. The files included in the zip file are as follows:

* References
* File textures
* Image planes
* Audio files
* Render layer precomposition templates
* NURBS surface mental ray proxy files
* Mesh shape mental ray proxy files
* Disk caches
* nCaches
* Container hypergraph background images, container icons, container templates

To archive a scene

1. Save your scene.
2. Select File > Archive Scene.

The file and any dependencies are packaged into a zip file and placed in the same directory as the current file.

thanks for the info.. Is this a new feature in maya 2010? or 2009?
I was using 2008 at the time and I don't think I saw that option.

Thanks

I think it was introduced in Maya 2009 - when they started focusing more on pipeline production.
