So i know adobe has some scripting capabilities, but i don't understand the limits and potentials of it.
I work in IT, and i'm an 'ok' coder, but i want to know if adobe scripting can even do things i would use, before diving in.
For the clips i make, one of the steps is adding an adjustment layer with gaussian blur and low exposure. Then i put copies of all the clip segments beneath it, and adjust their position and scale to fill the screen so there isn't any black space.(see AdobeEditingGoal.png)
i don't remember the export details off the top of my head, but it's for instagram. (see EndResult.png)
can i write some code that would do this for me automatically? does adobe scripting have that kind of power?
So after i'm done editing a clip, and i'm ready to make it look right for instagram, i can trigger some script that:
there's plenty more i'm sure i need but this would be a good place to start. i need to streamline this editing process. i am but one man. please help.
Hi, it is realy easy if you familiar with After effects.
If you know from the beginning that you will do this the steps are.
Open Premiere pro and make Sequence with youre desire final dimensions
Open After effects and put all footage in composition with youre desire final dimensions. Select all layers, right click and choose Transform>Fit to comp height. Aftre this select all layers in After effects composition and choose from menu Edit>copy. Switch to Premiere pro and select video track 1 and choose paste.
On video track 2 put adjustmen layer with all youre effects.
Switch back to After effects composition. Select all layers, right click and choose Transform>Fit to comp width. Aftre this select all layers in After effects composition and choose from menu Edit>copy. Switch to Premiere pro and select video track 3 and choose paste.
Now you must have what you want.
If you're first edit footage in premiere and than you want to make this "effects" , there is a way. It will require some additional steps.
I think Stefan is on the right track; template sequences (and comps) seem like a better approach than scripting, for the workflow you described.
Your template sequence could contain all the work for 1 and 2; you'd then perform your edit for this episode, under 3, then "scale to frame size" and "remove timeline gaps" until it looks right.
