Re: How to know if a parameter is available ?

Hummm...I don't think it's possible. I don't know the script you're working on, but adding a new control to your script interface (to change the value of this property for all duplicates) may represent a solution.

Re: How to know if a parameter is available ?

A possible solution could be a try/catch statement.

Re: Binary data into binary script

You can embed binary data in you script as an hex string. When you execute the script, the icon file (if it does not already exists) can be recreated from the hex string. So basically what you need is some binToHex() and hexToBin() functions to do the conversion. for each icon file, convert binary d...

Re: Create a "correct" Adjustment layer

As a little hack you can try this (works in the active comp only):

3D switch bug

Hey guys, I'm not sure whether it is a bug or if I misunderstand something, but I observed the same behavior on both CS3 and CS4 (Mac & Win). Setting the 3D flag to true, when the layer is already 3D, resets the Z position to 0. It seems that internally the 3D switch is first disabled, and then it i...

Re: AE On A Mac does not generate LF character.

I don't know what G.SCENE_STRING contains but it sounds like this string already contains the newline sign. Did you try to write it directly to the file, i.e., file.write(G.SCENE_STRING) ? According to my test, "\r\n" seems to be the winner : http://nabscripts.com/Forum/Scripts/images/newline_test.p...

Bug in CS3 CS4 ?

Hey guys, could you please confirm me that the following piece of code causes a crash in CS3 and CS4 (Mac & Win): var layer = app.project.activeItem.layer(1); var dupLayer = layer.duplicate(); var mask = dupLayer.Masks.addProperty("Mask"); mask.name = "Triangle"; // BOUM ! The same code works fine i...

Multiline 'edittext'

I have noticed that the multiline property of edittext is broken on CS3 (Windows). var pal = new Window("palette", "Multiline Is Broken", [0,0,200,100]); pal.edt = pal.add("edittext", [10,10,190,90], "Test multiline text", {multiline:true}); pal.center(); pal.show(); I thought it was my code, so I'v...

Re: Hacking Expression (Article)

That's not #import, but #include (I think). Something like this:

Code: Select all

#include "C:/myUtils.js"
formatNumber(13, "0000");
