Sorry for the shameless plug, but I believe there will be some common interest here. As an aspiring Blu-ray Java developer, I have found few places online for people like myself to collaborate and share information. At this early stage in the game, there are many question to be answered, and 'best p...

Re: Export all(!) Layers

My guess is you'd need to write a script to 'unpack' all the nested comps into one large comp before using the in built export function again... I'm sure you already considered this as your least desired option, but I'm afraid to say there is no simple 'one shot' feature to do this, that I am aware ...

Re: How do i copy a datastructure?

Recreating what you describe in After Effects, the slider object seems to manifest itself as a generic 'Property' object. Probing it further with reflection we can see that the 'Property' object for the slider, has the following methods and properties. To see more about reflection see my post here: ...

Re: Render times progressively increasing on batch script render

w00t!

Re: Render times progressively increasing on batch script render

I write Scripts to produce hundreds of data-driven graphic screens and have noticed the same thing - the slowdown is quite significant. So far my solution has just been to throw enough PC's at the render to get it done in time, but it would be very nice to get to the bottom of the issue. I think its...

I think the reason it is not being renamed by your call to FileObj.rename() is that even after rendering, the OutputModule still holds a reference to a (non existant) file without the numbers on the end. Having some experence in this, I think After Effects puts the numbers on at a very late stage in...
