Re: Image Sequence Section Deletion

Jayse, Sorry for the tardy response. I've been trying like crazy to login but haven't been able to. It seems like the forum doesn't like Google Chrome. Anyway, the ISSD script will be released on aescripts.com in the next couple of days so check there soon! I'll try to post here when it's available....

Re: Is it possible to do a global source-replace on a comp?

I've tried to use the replaceSource() method of a layer and it doesn't work. I've got CS3 on a Mac Pro. I couldn't even find the replaceSource() method in the scripting guide. I've known that you can alt drag an item on a layer and replace that layer's source; I didn't know that you could alt drag a...

Re: timeToCurrentFormat bug?

Adobe asked me to place the question on their forums as well... just an FYI.

timeToCurrentFormat bug?

The problem: While creating a script within After Effects CS3, I noticed that there were certain instances where the global function timeToCurrentFormat would return the same value for different seconds values. It makes sense, of course, for seconds values that differ only slightly to return the sa...

Re: Open Latest File Version- Compare proj with auto-saved files

Latest Version 1.1 has been uploaded and the post above has it for download.

New in version 1.1:
-The 'Select Project' button is now centered.
-Now, if you select a project (when not using "Use Current") and it is the latest version, it asks if you would like to go ahead and open it up.

Re: Auto Express - automatic expressions

For some reason, when I open it up using the window menu in AE, the script still opens up in its own popup window. I've got it in the ScriptUI Panels folder but it doesn't seem to want to stick! I'm using CS3 on a Mac.

Open Latest File Version- Compare proj with auto-saved files

Every once in a while I will be working on a project and AE will crash without giving me a chance to save (that never happens to you guys right?). Well, since I use the auto-save feature, I will quickly look to see if the project I was working on was manually saved later than all of the auto-saved f...

Re: Set Dolly Cam

I'm getting an error when I try to unzip the file. Also, you can stop a camera from pointing at its point of interest by selecting Layer > Transform > Auto-Orient and setting it to Off. I re-uploaded the .zip file. It should work now. If not, I will upload it in a different format. I also edited th...

Set Dolly Cam

When working with layers in 3D space, many times you want to be able to move through them without having to worry about the camera panning and distorting the flat layers. This script quickly sets the camera's auto orientation to off. This, in turn, transforms the camera into a dolly camera that is f...

When I send my animations to my render farm, I collect only the project to the watch folder which is on the network. My source files remain on another drive (also on the network) without having to be placed inside the watch folder itself. Because I collect only the project, AE will open up the file ...

I'd like to see an alternative network renderer as well. AE Watch Folder: this is fine when you have text only animation, but if you have lots of video layers, then it takes a lot of time. Is there a way to execute a remote render, with out having to copy the source files over every time? I would a...

Get selected Render Queue Item

Does anyone know how to get the currently selected Render Queue Item or the currently selected Output Module under that Render Queue Item?

I can't find anything in the documentation and app.project.renderQueue.selected or .activeItem doesn't work. Anyone?

Modulous

What you can do is determine how many frames a beat in your music lasts and then, based upon what frame it is, you can use the modulous operator to find out which frame from your precomp should be displayed. For example, if it takes 30 frames for a beat to pass in your music, then set the following ...
