place an item in a specific folder in the project panel

Hi, is there a method for moving an item to a specific folder in the project panel. I can't find anything about it in the scripting PDF.

add a comp to a comp?

Hi, I am not sure if this is a really obvious one but what I am trying to do is place a comp within another comp. In the AE interface this would be that same as dropping a comp onto the comp icon at the bottom of the project panel.
Thanks

File.changePath not working

Hi, according to the Object Model Viewer in the Extendscript Toolkit, the File class has a method called changePath which I can't get to work. For example, here I am trying to move a file from my desktop to my documents folder. var theFile = File("~/Desktop/theTextFile.txt") theFile.changePath('~/Do...

_compareImagesAndGenerateResultForAutomatedTesting()

_compareImagesAndGenerateResultForAutomatedTesting()

Hi, all I can find out about this method is that it requires 5 parameters. Is there anywhere to get documentation on these obscure methods?

filePutDialog doesn't create a file?

Hi, when I run the following line of code:

Code: Select all

filePutDialog("Select File","MyProject.aep","EggP aep");
I expect an aep file to be created, but nothing happens. Am I missing a step?
Thanks

Re: How to get app.project.item(1)'s path?

Hi Jeff thanks for you explanation. I sent an email to Todd Kopriva asking about maybe getting some kind of comprehensive inheritance tree for the next scripting guide.

Re: How to get app.project.item(1)'s path?

Hi Jeff thanks for your answer. I pretty sure "Path" isn't mentioned as far as I can tell under "FootageItem object" and if you happen to look under "Item Object" rather than "FootageItem object" File isn't listed as a possible property. I sort of understand why, but it is kind of terse for non-code...

How to get app.project.item(1)'s path?

Hi, I can't seem to find anything in the documentation about getting a certain item's path. I am making a script that batches some sequences into mov proxies and what I can't seem to do is access each sequence's folder's path to tell the mov file to write itself to that location.

setting a property to an expression from within script

Hi I am making a script that makes an adjustment layer with a levels effect on it and I would like the the rgb gamma property to be an expression deriving its value from the input white property. Although I can get the expression to work as a simple number eg: myComp = app.project.activeItem; mySoli...
