Trying to create a very simple script loop for Presets
on Mar 15, 2019 at 7:34:09 pm

Hi there,

VERY new to scripting but use a ton of AEscripts tools in After Effects.

I'm trying to create a very small script that will apply pre-sets all at the same time to a selected layer.

I currently have this but it doesn't seem to work. Scripts within the *** they are not in the script file.

*********************************

var presetList = [

'c:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects CS6/Support Files/Presets/BrainStorm/Brainstorm Exposure Correction.ffx',

'c:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects CS6/Support Files/Presets/BrainStorm/Brainstorm Screen Enhancer.ffx',

'c:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects CS6/Support Files/Presets/BrainStorm/Brainstorm Primatte Keyer Default.ffx',

'c:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects CS6/Support Files/Presets/BrainStorm/Brainstorm Samurai.ffx',

'c:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects CS6/Support Files/Presets/BrainStorm/Colour Fix For Blacks.ffx',];

for (var i = 0; i < presetList.length; i++)

{

app.project.activeItem.selectedLayers[0].applyPreset(presetList[i]);

}

********************************

If I run it from a docked UI panel for scripts nothing happens, if I try it as a JavaScript button in FT ToolBar 2 it doesn't do anything, but if I launch it from the File/Run/Script route I just get an error saying that the ffx file is not a file or folder?

I've tried guessing different ways of writing the pre-set location but don't seem to be having any luck.

If anyone has an idea on how to get this working it would be awesome.

Thanks,

Chris
