Needed: Recursive AppleScript to extract audio from 350 movies in various sub-folders

I have 350 quicktime movies (narrated slide shows) which I need to extract the audio channel and save it as a .AIF file in a central folder.

I need a recursive AppleScript to extract the audio track from movies inside many sub-folders of one main folder. The folders also contain some other non-QT files as well.

The extracted audio track are to be saved as .AIF audio files in a single folder, so I can later do an optmised MP3 compression on them.

I am not quite up to doing this in AppleScript myself...

G'day Doneison,

Have you started with the Applescript?

Cheers,

Sorry, I should have closed this question.

I am now using FileJuicer to extract the audio from the QT movies. It will do folders and sub-folders, and is much faster than using AppleScript and QT Player...
