I am using a script to convert some Flip cam MP4 files to 1080p DVC Pro HD files or Apple Pro Res 422. The problem is, as far as I can tell, there is no way to dictate the custom settings through Applescript. I had a look through the dictionary and found this:
export‚v : Export a movie or track to a file
export specifier : the movie or track to export
to file : the destination file
as AIFF/Apple TV/AVI/BMP/DV stream/Fast Start QTVR Movie/FLC/hinted movie/image sequence/interframe compressed VR object movie/iPhone/iPhone cellular/iTunes/MuLaw/MPEG2/MPEG4/picture/QuickTime media link/QuickTime movie/QuickTime TeXML/standard MIDI/System 7 sound/text file/ThreeGPP/wave : the desired file type
[using default settings/most recent settings] : the export settings to use
[using settings preset text] : the name of the export settings preset to use
[using settings file] : the file containing the export settings
[replacing boolean] : should the original file be deleted first?
The one I am interested is maybe “Using settings file” or “using settings preset text.”
How do you make/specify these custom settings?
Thank you so much for your help.
