Re: Referencing image sequence filenames from ae script

ok I've got the file deletion code working. this is incredibly slow, especially with large image sequences because it's just brute force matching. I'm sure there's a more elegant method but I'm just happy to have results atm. var targetFolder = new Folder(targetFolderPath); var theFiles = targetFold...

Referencing image sequence filenames from ae script

Specifically what I'm trying to do is this: I have some heinous renders and we are doing multiple machine rendering. Let's say one of the machine glitches and I have a large number of bad frames.

When I try to then assign an effect from my array onto the target layer it gives me 'After Effects error: Can not add a property with name "[object PropertyGroup]" to this PropertyGroup'. I ...

Copy n effects off of a source layer onto target layers?

Hello all - I was wondering if you knew a robust way to use a script to copy effects(including keyframes) from a template layer onto a number of target layers. I have been fiddling with CreateLinkedEffects but I seem to butt my head up against how to create or manipulate arrays of effects, or even a...
