Re: Compositions Renamer

To potentially solve that issue of running the script over and over due to sorting issues...
put the selected comps into an array.
Once there, you could retrieve the comps one by one by iterating through the array and rename them one by one.. all in one go.

Just a thought...

Re: How do I reference footage by name?

You can do a 'for' loop matching the name of 'cats.mov' ex. for (i = 1; i <= app.project.items.length; i++) { if ((app.project.item(i).name == "cat.mov") && (app.project.item(i).typeName == "Footage")) { //do stuff } } The second part of your question about adding the footage to the comp's work area...

Syntax for a multi-dimensional array?

I know the syntax for a 1 dimensional array..
var myArray = new Array();

But what is the syntax for a 2 or 3 dimensional array?


Also.. what is the syntax for making a number into a string?
say for example,

alert(myArray[0] (as String)); ...or something like that...

Re: Layer mask interegation.

So this thread might be a bit old.. but I am interested in the first two parts..
That is..
1.) does this layer contain a mask.
2.) how many masks are on this layer.
...and if I can ask for a third..
3.) double the mask(s) feather

Re: Resizing Solids and Adjustment layers...

Re: Resizing Solids and Adjustment layers...

Awesome! Between changing the solidSource to SolidSource and changing the [] to (), both are now resized!

They didn't line up at first, but I guess I have to double the position as well...

Thanks for all your help!

Resizing Solids and Adjustment layers...

So I've tried to resize the solid's width and height and it says its read-only... I don't want to scale the solid because it will retain the dimensions of the original... How do you script going into solid settings and changing the width and height that way? app.project.item(1).layer(1).width = 1920...

searching every layer in selected compositions...

First things first... The "Open Script Editor" doesn't open anymore for me... I have CS3 and closed each section when I was done with the script editor... now it seems to have disappeared completely... I'm sure it's open and remembering my "closed" settings... and I have no idea how to get that back...
