This course, taught by Lloyd Alvarez, will provide an introduction to the main scripting tools available in Adobe After Effects versions CS3 and above.  Scripting automates tedious tasks that can be done by hand in After Effects so a good working knowledge of After Effects is strongly recommended before taking this course.  After Effects can be scripted in ExtendScript (Adobe’s extended implementation of javascript.) on both mac and windows as well as Applescript on the mac and Visual Basic on Windows.  This course will only cover ExtendScript because of its cross-platform nature and larger resource base due to its javascript foundation.


Class 1: Basic overview of what scripting is and a brief overview of what will be learned over the whole course. We will also begin writing our first script that will cover the fundamentals covered in lessons 1-3. Introduction to the After Effects DOM model and variables. Overview of the resources available for AE scripting and how to use them. Finally a quick overview on how to install and run scripts.
Class 2: Introduction to ExtendScript Toolkit - the full-featured javascript debugger that comes with After Effects and the application in which we will create all the scripts in this course. Introduction to variables, operators, arrays and basic user interface controls.
Class 3: Introduction to conditionals, loops and functions.
Class 4: Script assignment 1: DSLR cinematography workflow offline clip creator script. Subjects covered: Basic error checking. Looping through project and create comps from footage items. Add a text layer to each comp with an expression, add items to the render queue and set a custom destination.
