My problem comes when I'm trying to automate the task. I have the image slivers which I did by exporting out every x amount of frames in After Effects.
What I need to do is basically load in a file and shift it x amount of pixels. For example, I have let's say 100 files that are 16 pixels wide. The first file needs to load in all the way to the left, and each following file needs to be shifted on the x position + 16 based on where the previous file was placed.
I know nothing of photoshop scripting but I can't find an answer anywhere. I could do it manually but it would subsequently take hours.
Any help is much appreciated :) Thanks!
Oh, also. I just figure out the width of the file by multiplying my frames by the width of the images.
This isn't ideal but, could you make Photoshop Droplets for each of the different shifts, then use your computer's search facility to find all the files that need to be dragged to each shift (maybe some kind of wildcard search?)
Or I guess you could just search for them and drag each batch into Photoshop and run an Action with the Automator on all open files and avoid having to make the droplets.
