Hi all. Just wondering if such a script or plug-in exists? So what I have are –
BackgroundIMG01.JPG (x5 colour variations)
MidgroundIMG01.JPG (x5 colour variations)
ForegroundIMG01.JPG (x5 colour variations)
(all named sequentially)
Each with its own layer. Is there a function where I can get After Effects to automatically create a new composition with every possible combination from the above assets, via just replacing the layers?
Each layer would have some form of animation/effects applied, which is why I’d be leaning towards replacing a layer, rather than creating a completely new composition for each combination.
Holy cow, did you write this? This looks awesome! Ty so much!!
I’ve started my comp and added the files in, and changed the values in your script. However, the return I’m getting is on line 49, “Unable to call “item” because of parameter 1. null is not an unsigned integer.”
After that, the script was able to duplicate the main comp with the name “F1_M1_B1” as per the script, but no layers were changed.
I’ve mucked around with the Lines 49-53, but I don’t have much clue in this area.
Absolutely amazing! Thank you so much. I’ve had another look at the original script and my working files; I was silly. I didn’t even think to check the case-sensitivity on ext! Had mine at “.PNG” rather than “.png”, which resolved the issue immediately. Thank you so much for this!
