    Default Help! I need a command-line video editing software that can do the following...

    As I have standard tasks to apply to a source video file, I am looking for a video editing software that preferably has a command line interface so I can create a batch file to run the tasks quickly.

    There are 3 main tasks

    1. Video speed change (fast-forward, effectively shorterning the length of video)
    2. Background audio mastering - I will provide MP3/WAV file(s) of course
    3. Insert video snippet at the end of the video (just about 5 seconds of "advertisement" for my service)

    I may need to get someone not-so-familiar with video editing to carry out the bulk processing, so manual work + GUI will be time consuming. Would be nice to have a CLI tool that I can batch process.

    Any help? Willing to pay for such a software


    P.S: I know the "RTFM" rule but I am not familiar with the jargons in video editing, so when I try to explore the softwares I see jargons like non-linear, rendering etc etc which confuse me. I am really looking for a tool that does the above, and find out the command syntax required to carry out the function. If anyone kind enough to help the extra mile I would greatly appreciate

    guys.. even if they are 3 different .exe I don't mind to run one command per task calling a different .exe each time, as long as I can accomplish the objective in one single .bat file
