QuickTime Player: saving the configuration files

QuickTime Player Pro AppleScript driven batch translation from FLIP Video 3ivx to Apple Intermediate codec requires a QuickTime configuration (.set) file.

You can't save a configuration file from QuickTime Player Pro. (How hard would that have been?)

You need to open video file, set up the export settings, then run an AppleScript like this one:
tell application "QuickTime Player"
tell first document
save export settings for QuickTime movie to file "BootDrive:Users:jfaughnan:Documents:aic2.set"
end tell
end tell
You'll need to edit the "BootDrive ..." stuff to match your hard drive (Volume) name and user name.

What a nuisance!
