Quicktime Timecode Track

I have been looking online, unsuccessfully, for days now for some ideas on how to use Applescript to add a timecode track to an existing Quicktime movie. I have found various DOS command-line things, some weird Java stuff, a bunch of commercial software that works with Final Cut Pro, etc., etc… But all I want is a nice, simple, Applescript. Surely this can’t be too hard to do, can it?

Model: iBook G4
Browser: Safari 419.3
Operating System: Mac OS X (10.4)

It sounds like you need to add a text track to your movie. You can write a script to create a text file with time codes and add it to the movie. I wrote a quicktime workflow for adding stuff to a movie… one in particular might help you. And apple has a tutorial for creating a text track. These should get you started.


A quick google search turned this up too.
