scripting: looking for a few hidden command IDs
on Sep 15, 2019 at 1:55:24 am

I'm looking to access a few of AE's internal ops via scripting. I already know how to find the command IDs of menu commands (app.findMenuCommandId("whatever")), but there are a bunch of ops that don't seem to want to give up their IDs, or don't have any in the first place.

Does anyone know if the following ops have command IDs, or else have simple ExtendScript equivalents? (I've heard moving keyframes in ES is a pain.)
  • Shift Selected Keyframes 1 Frame Earlier / NudgeKeyframesEarlier (Alt+LeftArrow)
  • Shift Selected Keyframes 10 Frames Earlier / NudgeKeyframesEarlierMore (Alt+Shift+LeftArrow)

  • Shift Layer 1 Frame Earlier / NudgeEarlier (Alt+PageUP)
  • Shift Layer 10 Frames Earlier / NudgeEarlierMore (Alt+Shift+PageUP)

Yeah, I know I could learn ES properly and code this stuff from scratch. But I'm not trying to do anything super-custom in this case, just use default AE ops. AE should be better about exposing this stuff.
