I had an email conversation with Matt , who wanted to fetch some xml to play with the new E4X XML parsing in AE CS3 . We’re still waiting for the ExtendScript HttpConnection Object to show up in After Effects, but we do have access to the Socket Object. The Socket Object is a little low level, but if you are using web feeds and don’t need authentication it’s actually pretty easy.
Update : There's a new summary of scripting changes in After Effects CS6, plus a new scripting guide , and a resource summary on PVC, Using and creating After Effects scripts . Earlier, Jeff Almosul and Todd Kopriva detailed the Scripting changes in After Effects CS5 at Todd's Blog. See also AE CS5 Help on Scripts and Expressions . Jeff Almasol is gradually updating his redefinery scripts so they can be updated to work as dockable panels in CS3 . These will include the DV Rebel Tools and ones for Mark Christiansen’s Studio Techniques book.
