I'm wondering if there is a way to use the built-in export function on multiple files.

The formatting the built-in export uses is exactly what I'm looking for, just with multiple files. The tutorial in the scripting section creates a file that looks different and did not work for me.

Is there a ruby file somewhere in the application data that performs this export? If so, I can write my own script that will iterate through a folder and perform the logic to create an export for each file.

If there is anymore information I can provide, please let me know.

Thank you!!

There is a Ruby file that implements the frame-by-frame export but it needs tweaking to work with video files that are not 29.97 FPS... and it might not be as up-to-date as the internal function. Here's a link to the file: export by frame script

I'm not sure how comfortable you are with Java and Ruby, but if you just need a reference into the internal exporting routines, check out the GitHub page for the exporting class : exporting Java class

Here's some sample Ruby code to make use of the exporting class:

import org.datavyu.controllers.ExportDatabaseFileC;

outfn1 = File.expand_path("~/Desktop/export.csv") outfn2 = File.expand_path("~/Desktop/export_by_frame.csv")

exporter = ExportDatabaseFileC::new() exporter::exportAsCells(outfn1, $db) exporter::exportByFrame(outfn2, $db)

If you wanted to run it over multiple files, you would just put the relevant parts inside a loop with a loadDB().

Again, I'm not sure how experienced you are with programming so if any of this doesn't make sense, don't hesitate to ask!
