Create a Movie From a Sequence of Images Using QuickTime and AppleScript

March 19, 2009 · 1 comment

I was doing some troubleshooting on Animated Mandelbrot and ran across this neat AppleScript. Given a sequence of images it will create a MOV file using QuickTime.

tell application "QuickTime Player"
    activate
    open image sequence "/Users/jon/Desktop/debug/1.jpg" frames per second 24
end tell

Hey, I need an applescript to turn an image sequence in a folder into a QT file. I tried this… but I can’t get it to work. Syntax Error: Expected end of line, but found identifier.

Any thoughts?

Is there a way to have the script target the content of a folder you drop onto the Applescript.app?

Thanks,
Jay
