Re: Script for Watch Folder Automation

i know this 4 years old but in case someone comes across it and still uses watchfolder as a cheap renderfarm I think  I have a solution; i'm fairly sure AE is being a little bitch and not picking up projects that have too long a name or funky characters basically your aep filename should be (as far ...

Re: Are custom effects still not scriptable (CS6+) ?

For CUSTOM_VALUE (eg curves) AND NO_VALUE (eg gradient), it is not even possible to read the value (there is no object designed to wrap the value data). By the way, how would you save a preset by script, even if there is no such type of value involved ? use the call UI command function on "Save Ani...

Are custom effects still not scriptable (CS6+) ?

Hello, I know this was impossible in the past but Is there a way to write/read custom data ? I'm thinking 'black box' type effects -- Optical Flares, Looks etc... or even histogram/curve? Looking at PropertyValueType.CUSTOM_VALUE, there's no way, short of asking the user to save an FFX thanks bernie

Automatic 'Send To Watchfolder'

I posted on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/AfterEffects/comments/sd51t/for_those_of_you_who_render_large_number_of_comps/ but if you're on AEnhancers you know better; basically it's a tiny tool to send your project to a watchfolder without have to do a nasty collect files. http://i.imgur.com/poTWO....

Re: TreeView

you mean like you could feed it an array instead of doing it by hand with for loops?

I'm guessing you could do it with a prototype (?), but I'm curious if it can be done with a built-in funciton.

UI woes: multi-column listbox

Hello coders. I feel like I'm alone here. I'm trying to use a listbox with column titles, as mentioned in the javascript tools guide. However I get a nasty (and seldom seen) error message upon executing the code: Server interface error '' the code i'm using is var list = pal.add ("ListBox", [10, 50,...

Re: Recursive delete

ok, so as usual I find the answer right after posting on a forum. I guess the scope of my variable was screwing things up, until i added var before declaring variables. This works: path = "~/Desktop/test_x"; function recursiveDelete(pathz){ var fold = new Folder(pathz.toString()); var files = fold.g...

Recursive delete

I'm trying to delete folders & files via after effects, and I've learned the hard way that oyu need to 'empty' the folders before you can delete them. So I'm trying to build a recursive function that will delete all the subfolders and their files as well, but it doesn't seem to handle to recursion. ...

callSystem as a separate process? (WIN)

Hello scripters I'm using system.callSystem to launch a frame-cycler (djv view in my case) but I can't figure out how to launch the application without having AE hanging waiting for me to close the window. In windows I know that you can use 'start app-path.exe' to launch a new process, but I can't s...

return array of folders only?

Hello coders! I'm trying to use the getFiles method to make a list of folders and choose the last one modified. I understand that fileorfolderObject.modified() churns out a Date object which I can use, but I can't figure out how to make the getFile method to choose folders only. The adobe guides spe...
