I copy clips from premiere pro and paste it inside AE comps a lot. Two problems here. The clips are placed at premiere pro timecode. I wrote this script to bring the pasted clips to wherever the after effects current time indicator is.

Code: Select all

// fixtime.jsx

app.beginUndoGroup("fix time");

var activeItem = app.project.activeItem;
if ((activeItem == null) || !(activeItem instanceof CompItem)) {
    alert("Please select or open a composition first.");
} else {
    var selectedLayers = activeItem.selectedLayers;
    if (activeItem.selectedLayers.length == 0) {
        alert("Nothing pasted from premire pro");
    } else {

        var activeComp = activeItem;

        var myLayers = activeItem.selectedLayers;

        for (i = 0; i <= myLayers.length - 1; i++) {
            var currentLayer = myLayers[i];
            currentLayer.startTime = currentLayer.startTime - currentLayer.inPoint + activeItem.time;
        }

        for (i = 1; i <= myLayers.length - 1; i++) {

            var seqLayer = myLayers[i];
            var upperLayer = myLayers[i - 1]; //alert(upperLayer.outPoint)
            seqLayer.startTime = seqLayer.startTime + upperLayer.outPoint - activeItem.time;
            //alert(currentLayer.outPoint);

        }
    }
}



app.endUndoGroup()
