Well, I solved the problem. Turns out it was an audio issue that was occuring partway into the file. I just had to get our editor to export a new version of the leica.

Mysterious failure to complete rendering on some batch jobs

I've got a large batch job that is comprised of many small clips. I built a script which splits a leica reel into clips based on markers found in an XML file. So far, all of that has worked out great, however, some of the clips are inexplicably failing to complete. The script creates a complete list...

Strangly though, I can't really find any features that have really changed from 6.5 to 7 as far as scripting goes. Naturally, they've added the ExtendScript Editor which is a HUGE improvement for doing debugging, but as far as the language itself, the features seem relativly unchanged. I'm hoping th...

Querying footage/layer dimensions

I'm trying to get the pixel width and height of a piece of footage. I need to know this so that I can create a comp that fits it properly. The footage may change in size so I'm trying to be pre-emptive and anticipate this with my script. So far I've checked through the scripting guide in the Footage...

I wonder why Adobe excludes the ability to actually set render settings? I mean, even if we had to create render settings and build a new template with them, its still better than not being able to control your output from a script at all. I've basically had to dedicate a standalone machine to doing...

*sigh* That's pretty frustrating. You'd think they could just make a Character class and Paragraph class and expose those.

While I've never done it with a comp window, you can bring other windows such as the Render Queue to the front by doing a Show() command on it:

app.project.renderQueue.Show();

I believe that's the code to do it. Perhaps its possible to also force a Comp to show.

AE7 textlayer propreties, are they accessible yet?

I've been doing some reading up on Text layers and from what I've heard, AE6.5 didn't have any means of accessing things such as font or size properties for a text layer. The only real exposed property seemed to be the sourceText for changing the actual text of the layer. I'm really hoping that they...

Yeah, that's too bad. The autolayouts really made things a lot easier in my Photoshop dialog designs.

Thanks for the info.

OutputModule and RenderSettings object documentation

I'm wondering if there are any good examples of creating custom OutputModules and RenderSettings objects in a script. I'm struggling to try and create a batch renderer with a strict set of rendering settings. I'm intereseted in overriding the templates manually in my code, but can't seem to figure o...

AE7 relative window layouts

Greetings all, I'm having an issue with doing relative window/dialog layouts. I've developed some dialogs for Photoshop CS2 scripts that I wrote, but can't seem to adapt them properly. I've tried using both methods of a big long string to layout the controls, as well as a purely code-based object in...
