    Hello everyone! I am brand new to this forum, so thanks again for any help!!

    So anyways I have like 1000 video files, in.mov format.

    I need to convert the .mov to .mp4 and generate 30 second videos previews starting from around the 1 minute mark of each video till about a minute and a half. I have heard about ffmpeg but I have no idea how to use it.

    How can I do that ? Is there any solution?

    I really appreciate if anyone can help me out.

    Thanks!!
    Tom

    and the command to cut,

    Code:
    -ss 00:01:00 -t 00:00:30

    So

    Code:
    for %%a in ("*.mov") do ffmpeg -i "%%a" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -ss 00:01:00 -t 00:00:30  "newfiles\%%~na.mp4"
    pause

    THis is for windows but it shouldn't be that difficult to make a similar batch for mac. THe ffmpeg command is the same.
