Hey all, new here but I figured out this automation I’ve been trying to crack for a while, so I wrote it up on my blog:
Basically, I just wanted to send a master QuickTime file to the watch folder on my desktop and then have the output file moved back to the original folder that source file came from. And viola, here it is!
FYI, the transcoders I usually use are Adobe’s Media Encoder or Shutter Encoder, so I just use their built in watch folder functions. I am aware Automator has an encode video function, but that’s not enough control over the output file for my line of work.
