I'd like to have a way to automate creating a sequence, inserting two video segments, and then inserting another piece of video in-between that changes each time (the previous two segments are always the same).

Here's an image:

Is there any way to do at least part of the process? As in, is it possible to match up videos (with separate audio files) to sequences?

Couldn't you overwrite the actual footage used for the middle part? Premiere will simply take the new file's contents. – slhck Jan 20 '13 at 13:05
Yes, I could overwrite the middle part, but I'm looking for a way for that it would automatically just run through the different files and do this. It sounds like I'm being lazy, but I have to do this for hundreds of files (gameplay footage). Basically, a way to match up the sequence and the footage, so it will just run through it. (any way to do any scripts/addons/macros for Premiere Pro CS6?) – freeze_edit Jan 22 '13 at 5:38
@slhck Thanks for the idea, also, how could I 'overwrite'? I've tried "Replace with Clip" -> "From Bin" but the issue with that is it only replaces the length of the offline file. If the offline file is too short, then it cuts the footage; if it's too long, I have to press ripple delete. If I can find a way to overwrite it directly (with the same length), I might be able to use AutoHotKey to do it. – freeze_edit Jan 22 '13 at 6:00
I see… I meant replacing the actual file that's on your hard drive, but that's not going to help much in this case. – slhck Jan 23 '13 at 9:15

use Adobe Extenscript Toolkit CC. No documentation listed for Premiere Pro, but if you run ESTK CC you can view the data objects in premiere to write your code.
