I am a complete newbe with After Effects (CS4) but I want to accomplish the following :
My boss has many videoclips. These clips have several quality (Mpeg2 DVD or higher) with both 16:9 and 4:3 proportion.
These videoclips are NOT the same length (in time).
I want to batch convert these file to one format. (The clips have to keep there own proportion).
Watermarking (psd file), title, artist and recordlabel has to be inserted in the file.
The title, artist and recordlabel has to be read from another file (database, excel, plain text, anything is possible).
The title, artist, recordlabel has to be show X seconds from the beginning of the clip and be show for X seconds and the same routine at the end of the clip.
Can somebody help me to get me in the good direction to accomplish this?
You will need a script for that. Check sites like AEnhancers.com. Bits and pieces of such stuff already exist and you may be able to cobble your own variation together. If you have a budget, of course you can always hire one of the guys to do it for you...
Thanks for the advice, I will dive into it.
