rd: Script Launcher as a DropDownList - Help

I really like Jeff's "rd: Script Launcher" script for quick access to some of my more random scripts I've downloaded and made. However I'm wanting to go in a different direction based off of the code. Instead of using a UI listbox option in the res Group, I changed it to a UI DropDownList in the res...

Re: Font search

I can't wait until my AE CS4 upgrade gets here so I can try that new font scripting stuff out! That would be really handy at my job.

Re: ScriptUI DropDownList and onChange

Here is a snippet of my code on how I got it to work for one of my DropDownList scripts: pal.grp = pal.add(res); pal.layout.layout(true); pal.grp.minimumSize = pal.grp.size; pal.layout.resize(); pal.onResizing = pal.onResize = function () {this.layout.resize();} pal.grp.header.help.onClick = functio...

Open composition in the timeline via scripting?

Is there a way to open a composition into an empty timeline via scripting without manually double-clicking the composition in the project window in After Effects? My current script below does everything I need it to do in the "Begin Create Faux Logo Comp" section. But won't execute the "Begin Set co...

Drop Down List Populates UI

There is an example script in the ScriptUI section of the Bridge Javascript PDF for creating dynamic content (page 81 & 82), it's as follows: res = "dialog { \ whichInfo: DropDownList { alignment:'left' }, \ allGroups: Panel { orientation:'stack', \ info: Group { orientation: 'column', \ name: Group...

Re: app.executeCommand(...) List - work in progress (for CS3)

I just tried the

Code: Select all

alert(app.findMenuCommandId("Save frame as..."));
and it gave me 0 (zero) as the resultant in the alert.

Sounds like the same problem as I have above with the "Quicktime Movie..." command. Some commands I guess just aren't directly accessible in scripting currently.

Re: app.executeCommand(...) List - work in progress (for CS3)

Does anyone know why when I use the following code (to invoke the "File|Export|Quicktime Movie..." command): app.executeCommand(app.findMenuCommandId("Quicktime Movie...")); I don't get any result? All of the other File|Export commands can be called. Such as app.executeCommand(app.findMenuCommandId(...
