I got a bunch of clips (Not Comps) that are 23.96 fps but I want to bulk interpret the footage to 24 fps, but AE doesn't let me do it, I have to do it one by one and I have over 300 clips.

 

Any way to change this in bulk with a script? Thanks!

Change the interpretation once, then use the Rember Interpretation and Apply Interpretation functions from the right-click menu. Basics! You may want to read the online help.

I think this works:

var myFootageItem;
for (var i = 1; i <= app.project.numItems; i++){
	if (app.project.item(i) instanceof FootageItem){
		myFootageItem = app.project.item(i);
		if ((myFootageItem.mainSource instanceof FileSource) && ! (myFootageItem.mainSource.isStill)){
			myFootageItem.mainSource.conformFrameRate = 24;
		}
	}
}

With my upcoming extension Automation Blocks you can create these kinds of scripts in no time by combining blocks instead of writing code. Here is one that I just wrote for your task: It shows a dialog where you can enter a new frame rate and then applies this frame rate to all currently selected footage items:

I will add this script to our community library.

We will start a public beta for Automation Blocks this week - most likely already tomorrow.
