Re: Identifying layers with expressions

Ah ok, I thought you wanted to use expressions to do the deed... Actually it should be fairly straightforward, as you can query the 'expression' string of a layer app.project.item( index ).layer( index ).expression I'll give it a tug later, I do not have after effects at work (shake and nuke) Great...

Re: Identifying layers with expressions

you mean sort between lights, cameras, footage and comps ? it's fairly easy to do with scripting. If you still need it I'll give it a shot. matt Sorry, I realize now that I wrote out my request incorrectly. I am looking for a script that will identify any layers that include expressions. The expres...

Identifying layers with expressions

Is there a script around that will search and report all the layers in the project that includes layers? Even better find and tag them in some way?

Thanks,

Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

The script uses the position information, which is the position of the anchor point. It does not use the centre of the layer, if that's what you are asking. It treats all kinds of layers the same way, with a few special rules for lights and cameras (surprisingly, even audio layers have position inf...

Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

I am tracking a layer which is a pre-comp of some text. It is 967x144 in size. The main comp is 1024x576. The layers transformation as been altered and the anchor point changed as well. This has then been parented to a null. The null has transformation key frames, and the anchor point has also been ...

When importing that animation it creates the locator along with 3 cameras. I was wondering if you could prevent the inclusion of these cameras when the expo...

AE3D EXPORT Scale not working

I have keyframes in place, but when I look at the exported file I can see that the animation is not there. I tried this with version 1.12 and the lastest 1.14 of AE3D Export ...
