Batch relinking of files via Script

May 9, 2013 9:47 AM

Tags: #scripting

Is this possible in Premiere? I can script After Effects but i'm not sure whether PPro has the same scripting engine (the extend toolkit lists it as a target but i cannot find any docs on it)


Basically i have a project via AAF that i want to iterate through and relink the files according to some programatic criteria. It's not a straight like for like, the code will decide what to link to based on metadata.


I appreciate this forum is for a SDK plug in side of things but hoping someone might be able to help or put me out of my misery and tell me it's not possible?

    Not possible to do actual re-linking, but, in case it helps, in PPro CC you can get/set the XMP metadata for any project item via scripting.
