    Batch Export Options?

     One of the jobs I perform everyday is extremely tedious and I'm looking for ways to automate the workflow a bit more. I'll explain:

    Production delivers multiple promo reels to me, I log and capture them all, sometimes there are 200+. I am then supposed to export the .mxf's to specific locations.

    Automation: Currently, a script uses the list of promo's and populates an ALE to be imported. Each clip captured must then be put onto it's own timeline. Each created sequence from there is exported via TransferManager to a generic folder, where post-processing takes over.

    So my question is, is there a way to batch export the clips through transfer manager or to make each clip it's own sequence, of the same name?

    this would be a job for a macro program, i guess.  i made good experiences with one called macro express a while ago.

    If you're up for some programming AutoHotkey might get the job done.

    I've got an article here about programming some macro keys for Avid, but AutoHotKey is able to do far more than this.
