keep in mind that some codes changed from 7 to CS3 so I would make sure your script checks which version it's running on before it fires off it's commands.. -Lloyd That's no problem LLoyd, I know a way around this problem (suggested to me by my friend Chris B). Just type this: app.executeCommand(ap...

Good point Atomic, I have only been using CS3 lately, so these are only tested in CS3. I checked in AE 6.5 for you now and that wasn't supported.
My colleague says it works in 7.0!

app.executeCommand(...) List - work in progress (for CS3)

Hi, Regarding app.executeCommand(...) & app.findMenuCommandId: Anyone got a complete list of these commands? Here is the ones I have found out myself so far, I figured people would appreciate such a list. You can use these by typing: app.executeCommand(..commandID..) or even better: app.executeComma...

Thanks, the point here is that I needed to avoid any need of user interaction, so F2 wasn't an option. Thanks for the alternative tip on selectedLayers!

Deselect All Layers in a Comp

I was looking for how to quickly deselect any selected layers in a Comp in AE using Script. Here is how I did it: // Define myComp as first comp in project var myComp = app.project.item(1); // Define myLayers as the layers of this Comp myLayers = myComp.layers; // For loop that deselects all layers ...

I used the tips from nabscripts and wrote my own script, thanks Paul for tips on how to find the size of a text layer! I then did some calculations so I can position my text layer(s) vertically aligned with a graphical background. I didn't test your example code, but thanks anyway. Where can I find ...

Centre text vertically depending on nr of lines used

I am looking into if it there is a way to centre text on the screen (with script) depending on the number of lines used. I.e. it could be anything between for example 1 and 20 lines. The issue is that it needs to work for any font and any size, not just for a static, measured size. I am thinking abo...

Nudge Keyframes to Exact Frames

On request I have written a new useful script in After Effects CS3 for everyone in the AE Scripts community (I think it will work in older versions of AE too). This script moves/nudges all Transform keyframes in all layers in all comps to the nearest exact frame for any framerate. This is handy when...

Function to get Project Item by Name

I did not find a way of getting a Project Item by it's name, so I wrote this little function to allow you to directly refer to a Project item by it's name (assuming you know the name). This way you do not have to use the index number. Use the name of the item as the parameter, see the example below ...

Ensuring comp is shown during rendering

Hi, Perhaps this can't be achieved in Script, but I am having an issue with After Effects only showing a tiny window of the comp when automating many renders using script, i.e. AE is to fast and you can't preview what is being rendered. If there is a way to ensure comp window is kept intact and upda...
