Hey Everyone,

In advance, I am relatively new to the scripting game.

So far, I am attempting to create a script to help me automate my EXR pipeline.
I am wondering if there is a way to access the "Channel Information" within the "EXtractoR" effect.
As of right now, I have created a script to take the selected EXR files and place them into a composition. I then have the layers imported and the EXtractoR effect applied.
I am trying to set the attributes within the "Channel Information" section of the effect to search for the correct index. EX: Red Channel to find the ".R" selection. Do you know if/how I could achieve this?

Here is the script I have so far.

///////////////EXR PIPELINE SCRIPT///////////////

var selectedItems = app.project.selection;

for (var i=0; i < selectedItems.length; i++) {

var myComp = app.project.items.addComp(selectedItems[i].name.substring (1, selectedItems[i].name.length-16), selectedItems[i].width, selectedItems[i].height, selectedItems[i].pixelAspect, selectedItems[i].duration, selectedItems[i].frameRate);

var myLayer= myComp.layers.add(selectedItems[i])"Effects").addProperty("Extractor");


Thank you for your time!

EXtractOr is a plug-in developed by a 3rd party vendor, which Adobe licensed. I suggest writing an email to them at to see if maybe they can help you out? Otherwise you could always buy ProEXR from them which does exactly what you want from what I can tell (never used it myself...). It's only $50 and there's a free trial.
