Re: Render Settings template

Is there a way to check if a specific template is applied to Render Settings in the queue? Sadly, no. I'm dealing with this issue right now myself. I've already put in my feature request for it too. https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform Or is there a way to see if "Skip exist...

Re: CS5 Dropdownlist issues/warning

Sounds like a straight up bug. I've had it where if the panel is floating(not docked in the UI) and you toggle down a dropdownlist, then try to resize the panel window without selecting an item from the dropdown, it will lock up the script. Feel free to send an Adobe bug report/feature request like ...

Re: Listbox Woes

I just posted my solution for the Extendscript vs. AE error you had at : http://www.aenhancers.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1787 Here's the code again though: { var res = "dialog\ myListbox: ListBox { alignment:['fill','fill'], properties:{\ multiselect:true, \ numberOfColumns:5, \ showHeaders:true, \ co...

Re: UI woes: multi-column listbox

Your code works in Extended Script but gives me and error when I try and run it in AE. I ran into the same thing last weekend. I had forgotten about this post, thanks for the reminder. Here is what I found worked in AE for me. { var res = "dialog\ myListbox: ListBox { alignment:['fill','fill'], pro...

Re: Font search

I figured as much, but thought I'd ask. :) I was able to query the first line of text when I was testing a few days ago and I was seeing that only the first line of text was accessible via scripts. I had made a single text layer with three lines of text, each line a different font and I was able to ...

Re: Font search

Hey Paul, I just started venturing into a font search script that works right now, but I ran across a hiccup and during my search for an answer, found this thread. I noticed a few post ago in this thread someone was trying to set multiple fonts within one text layer and you have answered that it isn...

AE Plugin Matchnames list

Below is a list of Matchnames for plugins for After Effects CS5. It is not 100% complete (roughly just under 1200 effects at the moment), but it does contain all of the stock AE plugins plus many third party plugins. Can be handy for AE scripters or expression coders. The list should be in alphabeti...

Re: UI woes: multi-column listbox

If I add a new window via this code, it shows up fine. //"undefined" would be the window size. undefined=auto size and [0,0,200,300] would be specific pixel size 200 width x 300 height; var pal = new Window("palette", "LIST", undefined); var list = pal.add ("ListBox", [10, 50, 260,320], "desc",{numb...

Re: CS5 Dropdownlist issues/warning

Got an answer back from Adobe Bug Reports just now on this issue.
This is a known limitation of ScriptUI having a Flex (i.e., Flash)-based UI in CS5 -- contents can't overlap the edges of the "stage". Agreed that this is not pretty.

Re: Creating a new file

I have come across better universal compatibility with "\r" instead of "\n". I use them both, but if I need PC and Mac versions in one, I'll go with "\r" most times.

Re: Creating a new file

Did a test a moment ago and it worked perfectly. You just saved me half the code writing adamghering. Thanks! :) Side note: And THIS is why I keep harping on Adobe to get a complete scripting guide together. Let's skip the political BS and get something together that the AE community can actually us...

Re: Creating a new file

You're welcome, and thank you too. I wasn't aware of "a" or "e" options I've been looping through reading in contents to arrays, doing the replace "," with "\r" and then adding that to the head of my new contents. I've got some experimenting to do now. :) If this works, you've just saved me tons of ...
