Just finished cutting my new reel and want to know what you guys think.


Auto-run a script upon opening an AE project

07 August 2013 - 07:09 PM

I think I know the answer already, but is there any way to automatically run a script as soon as an AE project is loaded (on Mac)?  I know there's a script flag you can use that works for Windows, but last time I checked, the feature isn't supported on Macs.  


Is this still true for AE CS6 and CC?


My one thought for a workaround is to have a script run as part of a ScriptUI panel which is auto-loaded when AE is opened, but unfortunately, window layouts aren't saved with projects, so it would run EVERY TIME AE is opened and not just on a per project basis. 


Thanks for any help!

Ignore PS timeline properties when importing to AE

26 June 2013 - 11:35 PM

I've got a PSD I'm trying to import into After Effects and it's giving me problems.  One of the layers of my PSD is from an imported video, so PS CS6 put ALL of my layers into it's handy new Video Timeline and all of my layers now have video properties (in points, out points, duration etc.)  Not a big deal until I try to import it into AE.  Now all the layers in the comp are being treated as video layers with their properties carried over from Photoshop.  I've gotta go back and manually reset the ins and outs to where they should be, and if I want a layer to be longer than it's imported duration, I've gotta time remap it.  It's a pain.


Does anyone know how to remove the timeline properties from the PSD or at least get AE to ignore them??

AECS6 & Canon C300 Bugginess

21 May 2013 - 04:15 PM

I've been working on a project with c300 footage for the last couple weeks in AE and PremiereCS5.5 with no issues.  Using the "Replace with After Effects Composition" option in Premiere and adding effects as needed has been great.


So on a whim I decide to see what CS6 is all about, and now my c300 footage is not cooperating.  In AECS6 the footage appears black, green, or just as noise.  RAM previews, clearing the cache, purging all memory - nothing fixes it.  Footage works just fine in Premiere CS6 though : /


Anyone else notice this problem?
