* Tried using a Folder dialog prompt but decided not to
* Discovered the JPG output only likes to go to /Volume/ but not other locations

I found your blog blog
and tried the Extendscript toolkit...
but when I click the "run button"
the code only automated export the .xml file in "/slides",
like
"

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<slides>
	<cue timeCode="00:00:06.2" slideFileName="让人有代入感,和自己产生关联的广告 - YouTube_undefined_undefined_s001.jpg" />
	<cue timeCode="00:00:07.4" slideFileName="让人有代入感,和自己产生关联的广告 - YouTube_undefined_undefined_s002.jpg" />
	<cue timeCode="00:00:11.6" slideFileName="让人有代入感,和自己产生关联的广告 - YouTube_undefined_undefined_s003.jpg" />
	<cue timeCode="00:00:15.5" slideFileName="让人有代入感,和自己产生关联的广告 - YouTube_undefined_undefined_s004.jpg" />
	<cue timeCode="00:00:18.8" slideFileName="让人有代入感,和自己产生关联的广告 - YouTube_undefined_undefined_s005.jpg" />
	<cue timeCode="00:00:23.0" slideFileName="让人有代入感,和自己产生关联的广告 - YouTube_undefined_undefined_s006.jpg" />
</slides>

I am using the Adobe Pr 2015
