I have a large library of videos for a video instruction product. I have mostly been automating my workflows with FFmpeg and Ruby. I pull information such as titles, instructors' names, etc. from a database, and do some simple intro animations.
Is it possible to programmatically manipulate video with Final Cut Pro (I haven't bought it yet)? For example could I add join an “intro” animation, overlay animated text with all my 3000 videos for example?
How is automation done on large file sets done in the Video Production world? I'm a software engineer by trade, and I have only basic video production knowledge (but I want to learn!).
