microsoft expressions split clips into multiple files

open expressions (select transcode project)

file->new job

import file

select all your encoding video/audio settings

set your clips (click on location in timeline then on the “insert edit at playhead button”)

at this point you may have assumed clips would have encoded into separate files but this is not how expressions works inherently

save your job in case you make a mistake

right click on the job file in the media window at the bottom left and select duplicate

all of your video/audio encoding settings and clips you set will be duplicated

you can now duplicate as many times for as many clips as you have and remove the excess clips, using the clips tab (window->clips) to make sure you don’t make mistakes by referencing the start/stop times

click encode and watch as many files are queued!
