Looking for a way to mass auto-edit product videos

I posted this to the AE forum as well since I believe both AE and Premiere might be the tools for the job.

I'm not neccessarily new to the forums, but since I lost my previous login info I guess this is my first post :)

I'm looking for a way to automate product videos for e-commerce. Use case would be preparing repetitve footage of say 50 products ,e.g. wide, detail, mid and a close up shot for eachproduct. Each shot lasting a specific timespan (e.g. 1 second pre, 3 seconds roll, 1 second rest) and beeing prepared according to custom specification.
Having the 50 products shot 4 ways each, files downloaded into separate folders (or into one), I would like to run a script that would take the footage, insert (replace) it into a previously prepared edit template (in a Premiere Pro or After Effects project) and render it with prespecified settings (format, resolution, etc.). Even more preferably I could load a project, point a folder, replace all footage with one click - check for adjustments and queue render.

Is that possible with AE scripts or in any other way you guys know of? The point of this would be mass production of very simple product videos.

That definitely sounds more like something AE could do. I don't think you can write scripts for Premiere Pro. You might want to look this over while waiting for a more definitive answer from here.

Keep in mind they're a bunch of jerks over there but there is some helpful information pertaining to your question.

Here is what appears to be all of the AE scripts available for Premiere Pro
