Note that kJams 2 uses Python scripting!
You can use AppleScript to cause kJams Pro to export your songs to QuickTime format.
Here is an example script for kJams:
tell application "kJams Pro" -- returns the version of kJams that is running --version -- a test property, returns false if kJams is not crashed. set this to true to make kJams crash --crash --set crash to true -- it is okay to add the same song twice from a script, it will only be added once -- it is also okay if the song is on a CD, it won't actually add to the library in that case -- must pass a POSIX path set songID to add to library "/Volumes/SGB0001 - Free Style Jazz Volume 1/7 The Lady Is A Tramp.aiff" if songID is not 0 then -- POSIX path for output folder, tilde is okay for user folder export songID encoder "QuickTime Movie" preset "Animation / AAC Best" folder "~/Desktop" end if -- get or set the volume of mics and speakers. volume level goes from 0 to 100 set kSpeakers to 0 set kMicrophone_1 to 1 set volume kSpeakers level 50 get volume kMicrophone_1 -- you can get the current time, the remaining time, or the absolute duration of the currently playing song. -- curT is in floating point seconds set kCurSongTime_DURATION to 0 set kCurSongTime_CURRENT to 1 set kCurSongTime_REMAINING to 2 set curT to get time kCurSongTime_CURRENT -- you can get the current mode too (stopped, playing, paused) set kPlayModeType_STOPPED to 0 set kPlayModeType_PLAYING to 1 set kPlayModeType_PAUSED to 2 set playMode to get mode end tell
