Geoff RightsAdd Card Dance Effect In Script

My apologies if this has been asked before but I can't seem to find any good information about my topic.

I am writing a command line script that pulls in a layer and adds a card dance effect to the created layer. I am able to pull in the layer but I can't seem to find any information on how to apply the 'Card Dance' effect in a jsx script. I have found the function applyPreset(presetName) but I cant seem to find documentation on any of the presetNames you can pass in.

Any links or basic examples would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Assuming you have an object named "layer", this code will add Card Dance to it:

layer.property("ADBE Effect Parade").addProperty("APC CardDanceCam");

Thanks Walter,

Follow up question...I was able to access some of the properties of the card dance such as (rows / columns / gradient layers) but I am unable to access others such as the effects (Z Position - Source, Multiplier, Offset / Z Rotation - Source, Multiplier, Offset). Would you happen to know how to access those properties?

layer.property("Effects").property("Card Dance").property("Offset")
