in response to the doc snippet, i have tried:
rsync -avv -include "/film/jonah/**/sourceimages/" --include "*.tif" --exclude "*" /film /tmp
rsync -avv -include "/jonah/**/sourceimages/" --include "*.tif" --exclude "*" /film /tmp
which both should match the directory, then the tif in that directory before
getting to the final exclude of "*".
The --relative 'find ' trick didn't work, but i still have to play
with it some to see if i can get it to work.

this is a good idea, but i'm only doing things local now in preparation for
doing them over rsync. /film is a NFS mount. I'm trying to move all the
tif's that reside in a sourceimages directory to the local machine. then
i plan on using the same rsync command to periodically check to see if there
has been any changes in any of the tif's.

yeah...it does you a lot of memory...my first list build of all the *.tifs took
up 1.5 Gigs of my memory.
Thanks again for all your help,
