Re: help me please ^^

Once a valid password is entered you should store it somewhere. When you run the script it should only ask for the password only if the one stored one is not valid.

Re: Is there a way to find out if the project needs to be sa

I've requested it from Adobe many times but unfortunately as of CS5.5 it is still not in the scripting API.

The way Adobe decides what features to implement is based on how many people request it so I would encourage you to request it here: http://adobe.com/go/wish

Re: Using app.executeCommand() for New Solid Dialog Box

app.executeCommand() is an unsupported feature and Adobe discourages its use for reasons like you found plus it might not work consistently from version to version. You can create a new solid using the addSolid() method on pg94 of the CS3 scripting guide.

Hi Bob,

That script was replaced with the much more capable BatchProcessor: http://aescripts.com/batchprocessor/

Re: How to render a video with images loading externally?

Regardless of whether you can get it to work technically. After Effects' EULA specifically prohibits AE from being run in the way you describe so you would need to get a special license from Adobe to be able to run this service.

Re: Add expression to Levels with script

Then just add it as an expression:

Code: Select all

//Set Values
         levels.property(6).expression='1/thisComp.layer("GAMMA DOWN")("Effects")("Levels (Individual Controls)")("Gamma")';
Otherwise you need to calculate the actual value and set that.

Re: Use sampleImage() to create a color picker

You would need to use some for loops to scan every pixel in the image which will take for ever using sampleImage(). I think this is a job better suited for a PixelBender plugin.

Re: Add expression to Levels with script

What are you trying to set the value to? You need to put the value in the SetValue parenthesis. Currently you have this: //Set Values levels.property(6).setValue(thisComp.layer("GAMMA DOWN")("Effects")("Levels (Individual Controls)")("Gamma")); But it should be something like this: //Set Values leve...

Re: is there a solution for this?

You can just add an expression to the opacity channel for each layer you want to show and tie that to a slider in the parent comp. For example if the parent comp named "Main Comp" has an expression control slider on a control layer named "Control Null" then the expression on the opacity channel of t...
