Exporting hinted movies to a determined filename (AMATEUR)!

Dear Forum!

I’m working on an AppleScript droplet to take a series of mp3 files that I have and convert them all to Hinted Movie format using QuickTime Pro. The code as I have it works fine now, but it is not perfect. I’m hoping somebody could help me with two things:

(here’s my code, to begin with)

on open of movs
	set sl to ((choose folder with prompt "Save hinted movies to:") as text)
	tell application "QuickTime Player"
		repeat with i from 1 to number of items in movs
			set this_item to item i of movs
			open this_item
			set save_location to sl & (get name of movie 1) & ".mov"
			export movie 1 to save_location as hinted movie using default settings
			close movie 1 saving no
		end repeat
	end tell
end open

As a droplet, I would like to be able to drop several files on it at once and not have to specify the save location. I have experimented with getting the path of the dropped file, and using that as a jumping off point to extract just the component folder, but it gives me an error when I need to convert it to text.

Also, it doesn’t return the exact file name that I want.

For example, if i’m dropping

ideally, i would like to have 1_2_Committe_Talks.mov returned to me in the same folder. But as the script works right now, it would just return “Committe Talks.mov”

If you have any suggestions please help! Thanks.
