Can you test if an image is "off screen"?

Hi all, I'd like to be able to test whether a given image is at all visible within the comp area or not, judging from its transform attributes. I.e. "is it positioned completely off screen?" This requires looking at the layer's position, anchor point, rotation, scale etc. (And if there's a mask on t...

Ah, I see - the new folder gets created as a by-product of making more solids.
Thanks for the tip.
What a palaver though!

I'd already read that thread but I couldn't see any mention of creating a new folder. It talks about importing into an existing folder, right?

Ok - I've done it now! See the post titled: Layer power! "Instancer" and "Iterate Effect" scripts in the General Scripts Library To slide the layers randomly: - Select all the layers you want to slide - Move the time slider to the earliest time you want the layers to start from - Run the IterateEffe...

shuffle layers done!

I've just posted up a link to some tools I've written which do this - it's the post titled: Layer power! "Instancer" and "Iterate Effect" scripts in the General Scripts Library To shuffle the layers: - Select all the layers you want to shuffle - Run the IterateEffect tool - Pick the "random order" r...

Layer power! "Instancer" and "Iterate Effect&

Here are some scripts I've written which provide 2 handy tools: 1. Instancer This tool allows you to create multiple duplicates of a source image, with each duplicate having user-specified variations (e.g. random placement, random hue, etc.) It can also be used to create duplicates which are synced ...

Autosave

"A feature in which the program automatically saves data files at predetermined intervals. This is an important feature because it reduces the amount of work you would lose if your system crashed. Usually, you can specify how often you want the application to save data." I have lost hideous amounts ...

I've made one of those! :)

At the moment it is buried in a rather large script but I'll try and extract it for you soon...

That's a good idea.

Another way to specify a colour (<'scuse the spelling - I'm a Brit!) would have been to create a solid layer (Layer -> New.. -> Solid...) and set the colour on that.
But I can't see a scripting way of reading the colour value of the solid! :?

No, I mean I actually want to do the undo from within my script!

I want to make a GUI which includes its own "undo" button.
Any ideas?

Thanks very much for posting your script!

Could you possibly give us some example code showing how do build a basic UI using the script? (E.g. a window with a few widgets in it)

Thanks again,

User Interface building

I'm finding it very cumbersome building user interfaces into my scripts. It's particularly annoying to have to specify dimensions of every widget in absolute co-ordinates. Has anyone got any tools or tips to make this easier? So far I've found that Panels are good way to break up a big UI into more ...
