i have a script which let you open the browse dialog to select a text file. then in AE i have some text layers, which receive the text data from the text file.
but cause the expression, i'm not able to edit the text afterward. (only if i update the text file it self, it get updated). is there a way to allow to the user work on the AE to update the text file?
the script is: var myComp = app.project.activeItem;
var theFile = File.openDialog("select the file");
var layer = myComp.layer("Path");
if (layer instanceof TextLayer)
and the expression i put on the textSource is: myPath = thisComp.layer("Path").text.sourceText;
by the way, i created a text layer, name Path, which get the exact path of the selected text file.
