Is there a plugin or an automated way to add a whole directory of videos and have a cross fade added between each of them in Blender?

  • $\begingroup$ I am not aware of one. But I have needed an excuse to make a script for a while.. let me see how hard this is going to be! $\endgroup$ – Nathan Craddock Mar 7 '15 at 17:09
  • $\begingroup$ I can do it! Are there any specific options you need? $\endgroup$ – Nathan Craddock Mar 8 '15 at 3:10
  • $\begingroup$ @Zachman it would be good if the timings could be edited. Of course anything you can do would be appreciated. $\endgroup$ – Reed G. Law Mar 8 '15 at 3:41
  • $\begingroup$ Okay! Also, how would you like it to order the files. In the order they are in the folder, or by alphabetical/number. $\endgroup$ – Nathan Craddock Mar 8 '15 at 3:56

    $\begingroup$ So I have most everything done. I still have a few options to add, and it only works with .mov and .mp4 files so far. I also still have to add the sorting ability. Here it is for testing: github.com/MrSprite/VSEC $\endgroup$ – Nathan Craddock Mar 11 '15 at 15:53

I have finished the script. The script can be found on GitHub here: https://github.com/MrSprite/VSEC

I have not added sorting by file size or date yet, but all other features should be there! Let me know if it works!

  • $\begingroup$ It might be better to add the panel to the sequencer: bl_space_type='SEQUENCE_EDITOR' bl_region_type = 'UI' :) $\endgroup$ – p2or Mar 13 '15 at 10:01
