I have about 500 videos in a folder in .mp4 format that I need to crop all of them The exact same way. Is there a way in which I could run a script or command to crop the videos and bulk export them? I really don’t want to go through each one and crop and export! It’s about 500GB worth of videos.
Consider doing this directly in Adobe Media Encoder.
You can set the crop for the videos in the Adobe Media Encoder Source Tab.
Set the other parameters of your export, then save the cropping+properties as a preset.
Load your clips into AME, and apply your preset to all the clips.
Test this workflow on a small group of clips and make sure it is working as expected for you before you commit to it.
