I'm processing a lot of captured stills ( I'm going Quicktime Pro 7>ImageReady>Photoshop>After Effects ) in Photoshop and I've recorded a pile of actions that do various colour corrections and custom pattern overlays and so on and so forth. I want to apply the relevant action to all the layers individually and I want to write a script to do this if there is truly no other way. Each psd contains between 18 and 170 layers, named sequentially (001 ... 170 ), which I did with a script using some kind of incremental path through the layers so surely there must be...I am going mad with this!
As far as I can see there is no way to include loops in actions so this is why I am turning to scripting.
Seeing as I don't know how to do this, I can only really tell you how I don't want to do it. So:
I *don't* want to save each layer as its own file and use automator to open, apply action, and save. I want to do it all within the same PSD, keeping the layers.
Please don't tell me to use Illustrator because I don't have it.
Can anybody help me? This problem is driving me up the bloody wall.
