Re: Mass "Remove Masks" script?

You can also use my much-neglected "Mask Selection Helper" script on crgreen.com. It allows you to select all or some masks based on index or name matching. After selecting, you have to close the script window, then hit delete and the selected masks (even if they're not revealed) are deleted.

Re: Solid Renamer with its WIDTH and HEIGHT

Just saw your post, Martin.
This is a fine idea. I'm going to write this script and put it on my website soon. I'll let you know when it is there.

Re: New Window Appearing behind After Effects

Windows of type 'window' are never practical to use in AE. You should use palettes, panels or dialogs.

Code: Select all

new Window('palette'
would work better. Consider using my UI builder "Boethos", available at crgreen.com/boethos
It's totally free.

Re: Script does not work on mac os, only on windows, WHY?

Hi. I have to confess that I am currently on a (Mac) machine that has no CC or CS apps on it, other than ExtendScript Toolkit. I know. Don't ask. So I won't be able to test for the AE functionality until I get to another machine tonight (but that part looks totally right to me). But I can report tha...

Re: Batch Render for Keying

Here's a link to a movie (about 10 Megs) which describes a way to do this using two of my scripts (avl. on crgreen.com/aescripts) http://crgreen.com/qcs/howToUseQCompSections2_h.mov I'll probably keep this up for a week or so. The general idea is you duplicate those layers, replace the duplicates wi...

Thanks for the tip, Dan. Could you give a quick example of this? I don't think it is going to be an issue with what I'm working on, but I don't want to miss any potential SNAFUs.

looking for all keyframes

Here's something I'm surprised I've never seen or asked: Is there a good (meaning foolproof and efficient) trick for knowing what properties on a given layer have keyframes? Let's say you have no idea what properties are keyframed -- it could be one property or a hundred properties, Adobe or third-p...

Re: Get file name of img seq except frame padding?

and you could also use the regular expression solution (but if you want a number, parseInt it):

Code: Select all

n = "000100";
nAsString = (n.replace(/^[0]+/g,""));
//100 as string ("100")
nAsInteger = parseInt(nAsString);
// 100 as integer

Re: Get file name of img seq except frame padding?

[ UPDATE: Okay I just realized that using parseInt() is a very bad idea in this case, as using "padded" zeros is interpreted as octal (see http://www.w3schools.com/jsref/jsref_parseInt.asp -- "If the string begins with "0", the radix is 8 (octal). This feature is deprecated" [so even though it is de...

Re: Get file name of img seq except frame padding?

temp/shot01_####.dpx temp/shot01_#######.dpx temp/shot01.#.dpx How would I do to find just "shot01"? It would be hard to search the string and just ignore those characters, as there are so many possible naming conventions. For the first problem, you could do something like the following: Two step p...
