AE Enhancers logo challenge!

So we have this great forum full of creative people, but as a friend remarked to me today, isn't it a bit plain for such a creative place? I hereby challenge you, fellow Enhancers, to create a logo to replace the plain heading we currently see. This is not to say that any will be used on the site; t...

Hi,

I recently wrote a script to do this. You can download it form this forum post:

More rounding fun

Related to this, I found a delightful method to remove the decimal places from a number, equivalent to Math.floor.

Simply 'bitwise OR' with '0':

( ( expression ) | 0 )

This is a useful alternative as when using it to find the whole number of a division, it works properly for negative numbers.

Making a property non-animated

Yes, I came to the same conclusion that the only way to make a property static through script is to loop and remove keyframes. Would be glad to be proved wrong though...!

baseName+number = no problem?

When you encounter an image sequence, why not just take the base name then set up a loop which appends a number to the end of the name, and just continue to copy until there are no more files found? Perhaps this is the workaround you seemed reluctant to implement, but I don't consider this an untidy...

Great idea on your site

Looking at your site I've just come across your Comp_To_UI package. I'd first like to say what a briliantly twisted idea it is to get After Effect's script to write its own interface ;-) Its a nice script but I did encounter a couple of snags in using it which I think are worth correcting or pointin...

Determining who has file open...

Hi, I think you're right, this is beyond the scope of After Effects as determining who has a file open is quite a low level operating system task. The following page looks like it may cover a technique to let you do this: http://www.itworld.com/Comp/2291/book_050811winserverhacks_49/ Hope this helps...

Difference in operation

Hello, Yes I found the same as you. It seems that the behaviour of callSystem is to always look for a program with that name, whereas what you are probably wanting to execute is a 'DOS' style command. I came up against this myself when automatically exporting frames of an animation using the BMP out...

Rendering multiple comps/settings at once

Hi, I have written a Script (with GUI) which helps in that sometimes arduous task of setting up the render-queue. If you need to render multiple compositions with different settings/output modules, this will hopefully help you as much as it did me: http://www.aenhancers.com/viewtopic.php?t=523 - Chris

That's 3|337 !!!

Hi Maurky, Welcome to the forum. I tried your script out. Thats a really nice idea, to invoke the standalone renderer by script so that you can continue to use After Effects in the foreground. The only thing that would make it more useful is more user friendly input of the settings to use, and maybe...

Super useful!

Dude, that is one damn useful application of script. Good job :-) This would have been really useful for my most recent project (an interactive Quiz DVD with hundreds of screens). I've downloaded it an kept it 'in the toolbox' for later.

Thanks for sharing Cardeiro.
