"New Synthetic" Dialog Box

Nov 17, 2010 5:00 PM

Tags: #importer_api

Hello All,

 

We created new Custom Importer. When user clicks on our importer from "File->new" menu, he can see PP's "New Synthetic" Dialog box, where he puts settings for new import. In our code we generate new file in imGetPrefs8 as recomended in SDK, but don't know with what size and aspect ration to create new file. I know the setting available in SDKGetInfo8, but how can we access the setting that user chose in "New Synthetic" Dialog Box in imGetPrefs8?

 

Thank you.

    Hi Paul,

     

    You will receive the user's settings in the imGetPrefs8 selector, in imGetPrefsRec.imageWidth / imageHeight / pixelAspectNum / pixelAspect Den.

     

    Regards,

     

    Zac

    For CS4, that New Synthetic dialog was new, and unfortunately, importers were unable to get at those user-specified settings.  So the CS5 API is definitely an improvement over the CS4 API in this area.

    Nope, there's no way to do that, sorry to say.

    YFast asked: "Are there a way to disable New Synthetic dialog ? Or is still without changes ?"

     

    This issue is still open, but we are tracking it as bug group BG133528.

     

    YFast, can you provide a little detail on why you don't want this dialog?

     

    Thanks,

     

    Zac

    I'm trying to write plugin to integrate our MAM solution with CS6

    It should be just windows with list of materials. Editor will  choose material and import directly to CS6.
