    Hey Guys,

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this site. I have never written code before, and with you help I have written a great workflow for automator. It is geared towards anyone who has to Upload videos from After effects to send them to clients to view. The workflow does the following:

    1) Promps the user what email address(s) you want to send your links to.
    2) Asks where you AE Project is on your computer
    3) Renders anything in the render que of that project
    4) Adds all videos rendered from AE to cleaner 6.5.1 and compresses them to
    a small QT format for uploading
    5) Converts all compressed video file names to a web friendly format.
    6) Uploads you videos to your server
    7) Creates individual links to each uploaded video
    8) Sends a e-mail to anyone the user specified earlier with the links in the
    body of the message
    9) Text messages the user informing them the videos have been uploaded
    and the links we sent out.
    10) Shuts down your Mac.

    You will need the following programs:

    1)Adobe After Effects 7.0 or CS3
    2) Autodesk Cleaner 6.5.1
    3) AOL Instant Messenger
    4) Mail

    If you are interested, please send me a direct message. There is some prep work involved on your system you have to do, and you will have to change some of the workflow to fit your mac specifically, but it is such a time saver.
    I just don't want to have to post it all now.
