Items property (Null Object)
on May 11, 2016 at 4:17:01 pm

Hi every one.

I would like to disabled all the null object in every comp in my project, and only null objects. But how can I know what kind of type are all the layers in my comps ?

Thanks a lot.
Phil....

What do you mean by "disable". And why would you want that?

I mean disable : enabled = false. And I want that because I need to disable all the null objects.

Click off the eyeballs in all null layers manually.
Or try writing or finding a script to do them as a batch.

that's exactly I want to do : create a script to do that ? I have some of 200 items by project, I won't do that by hand.

Disabling is a very wide concept in AE. You could want to delete, unlink, make them have no effect etc.

Now I see you wanted to just toogle video OFF.

Unfortunately I'm unaware of any automated way to do that just for nulls.

Victoria Nece (who recently became the Ae product manager) wrote a script a while back that will help you select all nulls in a comp, among other things. Very useful!

I'm curious what you expect to accomplish with this, though. Are you just trying to hide the handles from nulls in the viewer?

Maybe he is preparing templates for publication in an effects package. The end user would not be able to modify them or reconstruct them to suit user purposes. If the user sat how the nullls were constructed they could possibly construct their own.
