I'm interested in knowing if there is a convenient way to set up a sequence of multiple rote edits I am going to need to do 30-50 times over the course of one video (maybe with future videos as well). I would like to figure out a way to automate this process as much as possible. Essentially I am going to be doing various pans and zooms over a collection of images in relatively rapid succession.

Something like this

This led me to the more general question, is it possible to create sequence/workflow of multiple steps in Premiere Pro, and how could I do this if so? I would be fine with a solution that involved scripting if needed though an aspect of this likely needs feedback per image since I'm not just doing the same pan/zooms in the same location on each photo.

So for this particular case, is there a way I can basically make a macro to:

  1. Import image
  2. Select Zoom + location/fit to screen
  3. Select Pan from point 1 to point 2
  4. Select Zoom origin and multiplier
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until I switch to another image

If I can get everything roughed out with this scriptable macro then I can just go to each keyframe pan/zoom and tweak them.
