GUI - ExtendScript
on Nov 15, 2016 at 4:52:35 pm

Hey guys,

Done all the functionalities required for my project via extendscript. Now, I want create a GUI for my script. Referred After Effects Scripting Guide which gives a code below for GUI:

function createUI(thisObj) {
var myPanel = thisObj;
myPanel.add("button", [10, 10, 100, 30], "Tool #1");
return myPanel;
}
var myToolsPanel = createUI(this);


I couldn't understand this code snippet. Kindly, help me in understanding this and also, provide me any resource related to complete GUI reference for after effects.

Thanks in advance!

There's a lot of documentation on building GUIs via scripting here:
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/developer/aftereffects/scripting/JavaScr...

Here's a tool to build WYSIWYG ScriptUIs:

And if you want to go way beyond ScriptUI, there's the new HTML5 panel system:
