    I had previously posted this elsewhere with no response until I saw the programming board, so maybe I can get some help here? ;)

    I am trying to set up an automator script to export my .avi movies to .m4v so I can import them into iTunes to watch on my ATV2, but I just now realized that Automator changed in Lion and the 'export movies' action is now gone!

    I'm still a novice at Automator, so can anyone help with the new actions needed to convert my files? So far, I have a 'Find Finder Items' action to search for all .avi files, then I had temporarily put in a 'Encode Media' action, but I'm not too sure how this one works. Which other actions would I need to get this to work? I don't know enough about AppleScript to be able to write it from scratch. Any help please? Thanks!
