How to write automated scripts for FCP?
on Sep 19, 2010 at 2:17:11 pm

Greetings!
I am interested in learning to write script for FCP so as to automate certain editing processes for my convenience.

>>At the moment, I want to edit 24fps footage. I want to cut the footage into 12 frame clips and then drop the second 12 frames of every 24. Making sense?

Of course i could do this manually, but the footage i want to edit is over 10 mins long and i am both too lazy and too interested to learn scripting.

>>Also, i wonder if there is a repository of scripting commands or a tutorial somewhere i could use to learn with.

Thanks!
J.

FCP is not a directly scriptable app, however you can do quite a bit with the XML files it can import and export.

I'm pretty sure that xmEdit's Traffic is no longer being actively developed, but it's a good example of what's possible:

Perhaps Automator will help.
