Dear folks,

 

I want to write a simple automation Blocks Script - but I'm new and am struggling with this simple task.

So basically I want to get the In and OutPoint from a clip in a sequence and write that info to the Metadata VideoIN / VideoOut Point. And this repeats for all clips in a sequence.

I got an basic idea, see screenshot and attachment (saved XML from automation blocks).

Chat GPT can help with logic, but not the execution.

Thank you for your support!

Cheers - Jakub

 

Mod note: Please mark Automation Blocks support request with the "SDK" label. I have done that for you. Cheers.

Hi Jakub,

 

your issue is most likely that the metadata fields for video in and out point require a string in timecode format, whereas the in and out points returned by Automation Blocks are floating numbers given the value in seconds. I changed the code to convert the time into timecode:

I also added some "write to console" blocks such that you can see the values in the console of Automation Blocks. This helps a lot during trouble shooting to understand what is going on.

Finally, I changed the loop to only loop over video clips and skip audio clips.
