    Hi

    I have about 50 MPEG videos of my dog (kris - http://quaker.sevenww.net:80/~bbanks/kris.mov) that are 800x600 that need translating to DV format, is there anyway to do this that is automated? I really don't want to spend a few years doing it my self!

    If you know any apple script you can automate the conversion process using quicktime pro.

    Quicktime pro will export to .dv

    good luck
    i did my 25, manually exporting, the little mpegs my digital camera makes.

    Import all of you're videos to Premiere or Final Cut Pro. place them on the timeline one after the other and export to DV/PAL.

    It's not that hard.

    Thats good news, AppleScript is one of my strong points! Have written the script and it worked ok.

    Thanks for all your help!
