Re:

I've tried using a script to turn off the Javascript Debugger pref in the past, with no success. Some prefs work well with scripting, others don't. The whole reason for the "Allow scripts to write files...." pref is presumably to add a degree of security, so I think it's highly unlikely a script co...

Re: Smart Importer script (for importing image sequences)

Hey Hackinghollywood. I abandoned the extendscript version of this and did complete the python application mentioned above. It's pretty sweet if I do say so myself and I use it every day, but it is quite custom to our studio's environment and I don't know that I can just throw it online. I did start...

Time remap keyframed cameras

So I came up with a cool expression technique today that I thought I should share! I had an interesting situation where I've got a 3D render and a 3D camera that I imported from 3DS Max. I needed to time-remap the 3D render but wanted my camera to continue to line up despite the time remapping, and ...

Re: Smart Importer script (for importing image sequences)

Hey Neil! Haha sorry about that, looks like I was mid programming something there and forgot to finish it. I abandoned this particular project when I switched to Adobe CC at the beginning of the year and found that Adobe did some seriously weird stuff with Script UI (and much of my code no longer wo...

Re: Collect fonts

This would be a VERY handy script: A script that would collect all the fonts used in an AE project and copy them to a destination. Much like Collect files does for the linked files in an AE project. I realize this is probaby not easy, and would be totally different for Mac and Windows, but WOW how ...

Re: Collect function for whoever wants it!

In doing further work on this I tweaked the function to write out a log file for any missing assets, etc. Consider this the commandline version. I'm going to work on collecting fonts next, so you'll see an argument in there for that. It doesn't do anything yet but you'll need to pass a boolean varia...

Collect function for whoever wants it!

Hey guys I made a python application to batch archive After Effects files and in doing so I had to write my own collect function. I thought it might be useful for some other people too so I'm throwing it up here if you want it. I made it as clean and robust as I could, and added lots of comments. I'...

Re: roundtrip to Avid script ?

Been a long while since I messed with this but I've definitely been able to do it before with Automatic Duck from MC -> AE. If I remember correctly that's now packaged with AE, so you should be able to import/export an EDL or AAF. Check out the manual and I'm certain there is something in there. I d...

Smart Importer script (for importing image sequences)

Hey Guys, I'm excited to release a script I made a few months back for importing image sequences automatically (saves me a ton of time when working with CG render passes and such). I'm never planning on selling this script and I'm not a professional coder, so I'm throwing it out there for free and a...

Re: AE3D EXPORT - AE scene to Maya, Max, and Lightwave

If anyone is interested I'll be posting my own script soon that allows you to import a camera and points from 3DS Max or Maya into AE. I used to use this script from Urbanspaceman but unfortunately I've found it to be a bit buggy and far more often than not I have to go the other way around (Max to ...
