Re: Create a custom Control effect

What to put instead of the "?" below to get an unselectable separator : <Popup name="$$$/AE/Preset/List=List" popup_string="item1|item2|?|item3" default="1"/> I've tried millions of things and none worked. Not a tremendously important question but that would still be helpful to know ! Try with "(-"...

Re: Extract strings from online XML

This is not the nicest way to write it, but you could retrieve the tempe_matin attribute of the second meteoweather like this:

Code: Select all

var tempmatin = rss.elements()[0].elements()[0].elements()[1].@tempe_matin;

Woh cool ! I've already noticed this function in ESTK's data browser, but never used it. The first argument is a flag to show/hide the Transparency Grid. The second argument is the magnification ratio. The third argument is the exposure. Here is another undocumented function that may be useful, thou...

Re: (Comp) Start Frame question

Thanks a lot Paul, problem solved !
Indeed, "Start numbering frames at" in the project settings was set to 1. Sometimes all these settings everywhere drive me nuts :)

(Comp) Start Frame question

Not directly related to scripting, but... In CS4, I can manually set the Start Frame (in the comp settings) to any non-negative number I choose to start counting from (as specified in the Doc). In CS5, I cannot set the Start Frame to 0 ! (any attempt to do so will reset the value to 1). This problem...

Re: Script to Slice a large Comp canvas Into cropped-Precomps.

See if SplitImage fits your needs ("This script allows you to split the selected project item into rectangular pieces.").

Re: Progress Bars and User Updates

You're right Yenaphe (as long as the script is displayed in a Window, of course). I actually forgot that I was already using update() in CS4 (this was useful for Mac at that time!).

Here is a summarize table (nice symmetric bug :) ):

Re: Progress Bars and User Updates

In CS5, this bug has been fixed on Mac.
But the bug now appears on Windows (test on Windows 7) :roll: .
Can someone confirm that before I file a bug report ?
(I'm using the SnpCreateProgressBar.jsx script from ExtendScript toolkit CS5 > SDK > Samples > javascript)

setProxyToNone() bug in CS5 ?

Hi guys,
setProxyToNone() crash my CS5 but used to work fine in CS4.
Could someone confirm this bug ?

Here is a sample code (assuming the first selected item has a proxy):

Code: Select all

var curItem = app.project.selection[0];
if (curItem.useProxy)
{
	curItem.setProxyToNone();
}
Thanks

Re: XML scripting examples?

Here is some pseudocode to get started.

Code: Select all

var file = ...;

// read XML
var content = file.read();
var xml = new XML(content);
var elements = xml.elements(); // retrieve all elements at root level in standard array
...

// write XML
var content = "... xml content ...";
file.write(content);
