Re: Running scripts from the command line: Scripting Guide ERROR

Hi all, I want to point something out which gave me quite a headake and maybe I can prevent others from having the same. The line dave pointed out works well: afterfx.exe -r c:\temp\yourAEScriptHere.jsx This line does also work as expected: afterfx -r "c:\temp\yourAEScriptHere.jsx" But this line thr...

How to call "Collect Files" via script?

Hi, What is the scripting equivalent for performing File -> Collect Files ? because I would like to chuck a few projects into the watchfolder. And where can I find those information if it's not in http://www.adobe.com/products/aftereffects/pdfs/aftereffectscs3_scripting_guide.pdf ? I hope this is th...

Re: Addding an effect to a layer

That simple - thanks a lot, Koby. To prevent further basic questions, can you please tell me where I can find such information in some documentation. The online scripting help is a big joke. There must be a simple index of all functions, methods, properties and some basic examples for things like I'...

Re: Addding an effect to a layer

Here is another related question (sorry - I'm still new to AFX): How do I access the properties of the just added effect? Lets say I've added a "Fast Blur" Effect to a layer. Reading the Bluriness value works like this: app.project.item(1).layer("whatever_0000.tga")("Effects")("Fast Blur")("Blurrine...

Re: How to render every Nth frame?

Thanks Paul, sorry for not getting back earlier. It's all about speed in rendering. What I want to do is simply render a preview file to quickly check a few things (like camera movement). And I don't need every frame to be in it. It is okay if the preview file just shows every 10th frame. Rendering ...

How to render every Nth frame?

Hello again,
what is the best way to tell AFX to render only every nth frame?
Would be nice if it played back the rendered Video-file in fps/n (instead of the original fps).
-> i.e. play back 2.5 fps if I rendered every 10th frame of a PAL project

thanks
Uli

Re: Stereoscopic Plugins or Scripts around?

Super - that did the trick! Next step would be to import the footage via script as well. So that one doesn't have to import it manually. The footage has always this pattern: Left: "z:\dir\subdir\maybeanothersubdir\shotname\L\shotname_L_0000.tga" Right: "z:\dir\subdir\maybeanothersubdir\shotname\R\sh...

Re: Stereoscopic Plugins or Scripts around?

Hi Paul, thank you very much for your effort! First I've opened it with quite a simple AEP and it said "Unable to execute script at line 16. undefined is not an object". I figured out that happend because of a light layer. But without the light it worked like a charm! :-) I will try to take this as ...

Re: Stereoscopic Plugins or Scripts around?

Thanks for the reply, kobyg.
Unfortunately we are buidling the scenes in Max - and there is no way around that. We are talking about complex 3d animation - not just titles or things you can achieve in AFX.
But since I hardly know AFX at all, I'm happy you've pointed that out.
Thanks

Re: Stereoscopic Plugins or Scripts around?

Thanks for the reply, Sebastien.
No good news, but it brings me a step further.

Realtime is not necessarily a must. Would have been nice - but anyway: something which does the tasks even NOT in realtime would make my life much easier.

More hints/suggestions?
Thanks

Stereoscopic Plugins or Scripts around?

Hi all, are there any stereoscopic plugins or scripts for AFX? What I'd like to have is something which applies any effect and adjustment settings to two comps in realtime. More detailed: I have two comps. One called "L" and one called "R". When I add a Layer, Effect, mask, etc to one of these comps...
