I have a script that I am using to pull specific type of files from a folder. These are Time coded video files. I would like the script to pull the files chronologically so that each clip is added subsequently in the timeline. However, it seems to be pulling by file size or something. Could anyone please help me change this? Thank you so much.
set theCount to 1 set theFolder to choose folder with prompt "Choose folder with Audio files you want to join together." tell application "Finder" set theFiles to files of folder theFolder whose name ends with ".mp4" set totalFiles to (count the theFiles) repeat with i from 1 to totalFiles --to 1 by -1 set thisfile to item i of theFiles as alias --QT Pro my mergeFilesUsingQT(thisfile, theCount, totalFiles) set theCount to theCount + 1 end repeat end tell on mergeFilesUsingQT(thisfile, theCount, totalFiles) tell application "QuickTime Player 7" set show welcome movie automatically to false activate --the first file only gets copied if theCount = 1 then open thisfile delay 0.5 tell document 1 select all copy end tell close document 1 saving no else --these files get the previous file added to it and --then it is copied to be added to the next file open thisfile delay 1 tell document 1 set x to get duration set current time to x paste select all copy end tell if theCount = totalFiles then else close document 1 saving no end if end if end tell end mergeFilesUsingQT --Closing and saving the document tell application "QuickTime Player 7" set filename to (path to desktop folder as string) & "test.mov" save document 1 in filename quit end tell
