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

and revised January 24, 2010

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"

  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
