  • Script to change the Line Join of shape layer line

    Posted by Kevin Snyder on September 22, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    I don’t know if this is even close, but I’m trying to change the Line Join of a shape layer to round. Here’s what I have so far.

    function line(){

    var myComp = app.project.activeItem;

    var myStroke ="Stroke");"Line Join").setValue([Round Join]);

    It’s a drop down menu, so you need to set the value to the index of the option you want.

    So something like this:

    app.project.item(1).layer("Shape Layer 1").property("Contents").property("Shape 1").property("Contents").property("Stroke 1").property("Line Join").setValue(2);

    Hi, you know if there’s any way of doing this for ALL the shape layers that you have selected? Some shape layers may have more than 1 object inside, so what should i do?
