ScriptUI for dummies ScriptUI is a module in the Adobe CS/CC family (from CS2 in Photoshop, CS3 for InDesign) with which script dialogs can be added to scripts written in JavaScript. The module is included in the ExtendScript Toolkit, and dialogs written in it can be used in scripts targeted at all CS and CC applications. Though this guide deals mainly with InDesign as a target application, virtually everything covered here applies to scripts written for the other CS and CC apps as well. This guide is for ScriptUI only: it assumes that you are more or less proficient in JavaScript. To my knowledge, the only documentation available on ScriptUI is a chapter in the file JavaScript Tools Guide CSn/CC.pdf (where n stands for a CS version), which is included with every version of the ESTK and can be found in the Help menu (in CS3, look in the SDK submenu of the Help menu). That chapter is a complete reference for the ScriptUI environment, but it is a bit short on examples here and there.

Nick Campbell Congratulations to Michael Rinnan for winning the Five Second Project for March. His entry had a great concept and was outfitted with excellent lighting, atmosphere, camera movements and sound design. We wanted to know a little bit more about Michael’s entry, so we asked him a few questions regarding his workflow and the process for creating his winning piece. Where do you work? What is your title?

Introduction To The Basics Of After Effects Scripting - Tuts+ 3D & Motion Graphics Tutorial To go along with our recent tutorial about script development workflow, we will go over the basic concepts and good practices necessary to start writing After Effects scripts. We will go over usual After Effects actions such as: creating a project, creating a composition, creating a layer, creating shapes, adding effects, changing values and expressions, using text and fonts, adding keyframes, using functions, etc. As stated in the After Effects Sublime Text build package installation and usage tutorial, scripts are files which use the Adobe ExtendScript language. ExtendScript is an extended form of JavaScript used by several Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

Smooth Animation Tips from Rocketpanda This is the first in a series of animation tips from our new house motion director, Rocketpanda: I created “Hotel trip” in a couple of evenings, using a small illustration Goran had produced as a simple test. I’ve been asked how I made some of the smooth moves and colour shifting; now, let me explain this one by each tool I used... Ease & Whizz This fabulous script will help you ease the property you choose from the time line.

After Effects ExtendScript Training: Ep. 1, 2 & 3 by David Torno - ProVideo Coalition Welcome to the After Effects ExtendScript Script Writing Training series. My name is David Torno and I will be taking you through the process of creating scripts using Adobe’s scripting language called ExtendScript. This is a weekly series focused on teaching you, the After Effects artist, how to create scripts using the ExtendScript programming language. Scripting can drastically improve workflows, speed up repetitive tasks as well as capture and output project information. Driven text In this tutorial, I would like to show you how to create some text effects by only using a single expression. Create a new Composition. Type a new Text Layer. Drop down the Text options. Click on the Animate options, choose Fill color, then RGB. This is done to make color offset as you can see from the preview video.

CEP 5 Super mega guide: Extending Adobe apps with HTML5+Node.js It’s not that widely known yet, but ever since the CC 2014 updates in June of this year, eight different Adobe tools now support a common extension framework based purely on web technologies. The framework, called CEP 5, uses panels defined in HTML5 backed up with the full power of Node.js. In short: anyone who’s comfortable with Javascript can now customize Adobe tools in unbearably awesome ways: I’ve now built a couple of projects with this, so I thought I’d write up everything you need to get started.
