AE newbie question: Export MOV files from one comp.
on Jul 6, 2012 at 5:08:47 pm

I am using the AE wire removal tool to remove sensor dust from several MOV clips. The tool works great. I have imported all clips and dropped them into one composition, applied the tool and made corrections. Now I need to export clips to new files for further editing in PP CS6. How get the files back out of AE as individual movie files?

Put each clip in its own comp and add the comps to the AE Render Queue.

Render in the codec of your choice.

I have 200 clips. Is there a way to automate comp creation?

Oh, there might be a way with a script, but I've never had to use one for that chore.

You can google After Effects Scripts to see if one exists, and probably spend just as much time as you would making the 200 comps. It's your choice.

Actually there is a pretty simple way.

1. Import all your original clips, preferably put them in a folder in AE project, helps keep organized.
2. Select them all and drag to the "create new comp" at the bottom of the project window.
3. In the dialog that appears, select "multiple compositions"
4. This method creates a comp for each of your clips with it's exact file name
5. Now it's just hard work, open each one of the compositions and paste the effect you want to the clip inside.

TIP: First, cmnd-C the effect from the "effect control" window. Now, select every COMP in your project, hit the numpad enter to open them all or double click one of the selected comps, and repeat this sequence:

cmnd-A (select all layers, in your case, just one), cmnd-V (paste the effect) and cmnd-W (close the comp window and move to the next)
That should at least make it go faster.

6. Render queue. Done. Just remember that the files will have the same name as the original, don't export to the same location
