Re: setting negative inpoint values

I narrowed it down to a single line.

once I have the layer object,

layer.inPoint = -2;

That should set the inPoint of the layer to -2 seconds. The resulting inPoint however is 0.

setting negative inpoint values

I have no problem setting the inpoint of a layer to a negative value manually. When I try to do it with the script the value is simply set to zero instead. Is there a way to set an inpoint value to a negative number besides just setting layer.inPoint? I'm using CS2. Can anybody quickly trying this o...

I can confirm this script works as is in CS3 when executed the usual way. Can anyone confirm if they have managed to get this to work when trying to use it to layout a dockable panel(installed in ScriptUI Panels folder)? I get no errors. My panel loads, but they're not laid out. All up against the l...

Converting 7.0 window to CS3 panel using UILayout

Edit: I just realized the issue is the new addUI method added by UILayout. It doesn't seem to work when run from the ScriptUI Panels from the windows menu. /Edit I have an AE7 script that creates a window, adds a variety of UI elements to it and shows the window. This script works as is in CS3 if I ...

Defining a path

I wrote a script in photoshop that loads points from a file and tells photoshop to stroke the path.
Is there a way to do this in After Effects? I don't really need to stroke the path. I just need to define it, so I can make a camera follow the path.

Deleting keyframes

What is the best way to delete keyframes for a property?
I am currently looping through all keyframes and deleting them one at a time. This is taking way to long to run.
Is there a property I can just switch on a layer off then on, or any other way?

Thanks

Really?!? So there's no way to provide feedback to screen during a long process without having the editor open? That's very strange that adobe would leave it like that. I'll try the edittext idea, but in theory the UI simply won't update anything until the function returns. Very basic threading prin...

UI updates

Hey all, I have a script that loads values from a file into keyframes in a composition. There are approximately 5000 keyframes being set. I'm new to the scriptui components, but I followed some examples and have a palette up showing a label and a start button. My problem is, when I hit start, it beg...
