It sure is dead around here...

Just not many posts compared to a couple of years ago!

Where has everyone gone? Is everyone on a different forum, or is there just not that much interest in After Effects scripting any more?

Cheers,
Dave

Re: 3D switch bug

Not sure if you can file a bug report or not. Maybe check the adobe site or the scripting reference.

Re: Replace words in expressions - script doesn't work

You could replace the eval in this code with a RegExp constructor:

var search_text = eval("/" + search_text + "/g");

var search_text = new RegExp(search_text, "g");

Re: ExtendScript toolkit sucks

Actually, it's one saving grace is that when you set breakpoints the data browser comes into its own!

UI Framework

Hey all, I've built a UI Framework for Photoshop, and of course it works perfectly in all the Adobe apps. Basically it works in a similar way to the ScriptUI API, but handles all the boring stuff like local layout of items into columns and rows, margins and spacing, nested panels (and resizing of co...

Re: Dialog Scripting Guide

It's been ages since I looked at any Adobe Scripting, but the interface items looks all properly scripted now, and the layout functionality is excellent.

I'm just building a rapid-layout framework which I will publish when I'm done.

ExtendScript toolkit sucks

Is it me, or is it just really fucking abysmal? - trailing auto-braces are always created one line in - tabs do not line up from row to row - line selecting / moving tends to drag the next paragraph as well - clicking the margin creates a breakpoint, rather than selecting the line - you have to trip...

Dialog Scripting Guide

Hey all,

It's been a long time since I was here! Anyway, I wondered if there's an updated window / dialog guide anywhere? I can't find anything useful at Adobe.

Cheers,

> The only thing I can think of is you haven't set the target to After Effects in the top left of the ExtendScript window....but then that seems a bit too obvious. Nothing is ever too obvious!

OK, this seems to be an ExtendScript Toolkit issue.

app.project comes up as an error when using this, but not if the script is run manually. What a PITA!

Any further thuoghts are VERY welcome.

A bloody restart solved things! A quirky Adobe copy/paste buffer I think. I get the same thing with PS sometimes - things just refuse to paste in.
