How To: Batch MUI process a whole folder

Postby friolator » Mon Dec 06, 2010 3:32 pm

So this is something I learned in a recent Sonic webinar on advanced authoring. It's an undocumented feature of the MUI generator, but it's pretty cool. Let's say you have a folder full of files that you need to generate the metadata for - you can drag the files into Scenarist and let it do them all at once, and this is fine if you don't have to do anything else in Scenarist at the time. But if you need to be doing some authoring, and perhaps MUI a folder full of video re-encodes, this is what you do:

1) Launch the MUI Generator application
2) Move it to the side, and open a Windows Explorer window.
3) drag the folder containing all of your new un-MUI'd files into the field in the MUI generator where you'd normally enter the path to a single file.
4) start generating MUI files. It'll do them all, in order.

You don't want to select multiple files and drag them in, you want to drag the folder that contains the video and audio files. The nice thing about this is that if you have a folder with a bunch of new files and a bunch of already MUI'd files, you can still just drag the folder over and the MUI Generator will automatically determine what needs doing.
