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

Re: Get the Index of ProjectItem

if you're wanting to replace a footage layer with an item in the Project panel, couldn't you just use the AVLayer replaceSource() method, which takes an AVItem object? e.g.,
myLayer.replaceSource(matchingItem, true);

Re: Get the Index of ProjectItem

not directly, but if you're already looping through all Item objects looking for one by name*, you'd have the index number when you break out of the loop when you find a match. :jeff *Item objects might not have unique names, so if you're iterating from the start of the collection, you'd find the fi...

Re: Here's a script for sorting layers by z positions

So Jeff's script does not include an option to reorder specifically in z, but it has all the essentials... Anybody wanna take a stab at it? THANKS! djuna hi djuna, i added a Layer Z Position option (in v1.2). note that it'll just look at the Z Position value, and won't compensate for Z Anchor Point...

Re: Possible to set layer markers at keyframes?

It occurred to me that it would be very helpful if layer markers were automatically placed at the positions where keyframes are. a script can't enable a mode to have that happen automatically, but you can certain write a script that updates layer markers to reflect the current keyframe positions, e...

So basically, if I understood it correctly, there is NO way of telling which layer user have selected in his currently open tab.
