I would create one script that monitors both folders. My language of choice for this is Python. AppleScript is not terribly well-suited to this kind of operation. The basic idea is to listen for FSEvents on the two folders in question, and when one occurs, quickly unschedule the event stream for the other folder, do some conversion and sync operation, then ...

Hey man I found this thread after searching how to do this exact thing. I figured it out and thought I'd post it here for any who might be having the same trouble. I am running 10.10.2 btw. The solution is to have the service receiving 'no input'. That way you can just hit the shortcut and it won't be waiting for something to process, which was causing it ...
