Re: Javascript equivalent to 'Reveal layer source in project

Re: check if render output file exsits

The problem is that the backslash is an escape character in javascript so your windows path: "D:\06_AE_Render\073_Preview_20110727.mov" looks like this to javascript: "D:_AE_Render;_Preview_20110727.mov" You can test this yourself with this simple code in ESTK: alert("D:\06_AE_Render\073_Preview_201...

Re: Render Settings template

Or is there a way to see if "Skip existing files" is enabled in the Render Settings window? app.project.renderQueue.item(index).skipFrames It will tell you how many frames are being skipped, so if you do a simple if/else statement you can check to see if it's on or not like so... var skip=app.proje...
