Is there computer automation software that will operate my computer in my absense ?

  Bansaw 02 Aug 11

I want my computer to work during the night exporting video timelines from my video editing program.

Can I get a program (hopefully freeware) that will automate a series of clicks on screen for me that will do the job while I sleep?

eg: 1. go to coorinates 300,400 2. right click and choose "export" 3. type in video name "sequence 03.avi" 4. click save

and then one hour later do this ... etc...

Can't help with finding an automation program but even if possible it seems to me that by the time you type all the instructions you might as well have just done it for real.

I have my doubts that there is such a program that will do what you want and if there is I can't see it being FREE !

Are you trying to download Files overnight?

Why not write a programme yourself?

The snag, of course, is if one export fails for whatever reason. Then what?

Don't think that this is possible.
