Some new scripts availible

Hi all, I've rewritten most of the scripts I've posted here, and published them, among with a few new ones, on my website. Have a look at http://bjorkvisuals.com/tools/adobe-after-effects . For example there is: - Nuke to After Effects exporter (3d objects) - Completely rewritten sb_autoRender - Scr...

Re: Progress bar and dockable panels

Thanks for your reply Chris!

I've tested you suggestion and it does indeed work. However, the progress bar isn't updating for each value, it jumps from min to max value as it's finished. Is this the expected behavior? I've tried longer sleeps, but it had no effect. I'm running CC on Windows.

Cheers.

Re: Progress bar and dockable panels

I still haven't found a solution for this. Maybe someone knows of an example script that could point me in the right direction?

Progress bar and dockable panels

I added a progress bar to a script, and everything seemed to work as expected, running it as a Window. However, as I tried to run in as a dockable panel I get an error saying I can't call update(). Am I missing something obvious here or can this not be done? Attached is an example script. function t...

Re: Start AE from command line and run script

Found app.exitAfterLaunchAndEval in the Scripting Guide. Seems to do the trick.

Start AE from command line and run script

I'm trying to start After Effects from the command line and run a script at the same time. I do this by executing a .cmd file with the following content: c: cd "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects CS6\Support Files" AfterFX.exe -m -r D:\script.jsx This works, but as soon as the script is run,...

Window within a panel

Hi all, I've been away from After Effects scripting for awhile, and now when I'm back I struggle with what I expect to be a simple task. I'm trying to create a new Window by clicking a button in my main Panel. However the new window closes as soon as it has been created. If I put an alert afterwards...

Re: Layer Timecode?

One way would be to use the SourceTC expression to read the timecode value and store that as a variable. That works if you for example want to create a new composition with the same timcode as the layer (equal to dragging the footage onto the create composition button).

Re: Auto Render 2 (file path, name etc) -- new version

Thanks for the kind words scribling, I'm glad to hear that you use it! I'm aware of several issues with this script, and when I find some time I'll post an updated version. Funny thing though, I'm not able to reproduce the issue you have. You mean you get double extension (.dpx.dpx)? Any other featu...

Re: Problem with UI and functions

Thanks a lot Paul, that explains a lot. I also believe your explanation helped me track down an old bug in another script of mine. Thanks for taking the time!

Re: Problem with UI and functions

Paul, once again, thank you for your help. I truly appriciate it. I tried the code you linked to and it does seem to work. However, I'm a bit unsure where to put my functions and user variables. Would you mind having a look at it? I will try to read up more on this as I realize I'm not fully followi...

Problem with UI and functions

Hi all, I have a strange problem that's driving me crazy. It might very well be that I'm misunderstanding the syntax, but I can't seem to find a solution. Anyway, the problem is the following: I have a script with a button and a dropdown list. When I press the button the script will alert the active...
