Audio Player SkinMaker script

Lately, I've been working on a demo for a new digital media distribution with DPS and found out how tedious it is to generate the skin PNGs for an audio file from Ai.

So... I wrote a little script that does it for me.

Then I thought "why not share it with others..."

So here's a link to my DPS Audio Player SkinMaker script.


To install it, copy the JSX file to the Scripts folder of Ai.

It's compatible with Ai CS3 or later (Mac and PC).


To use it, the following building guidelines must be kept:

1. Place the Play and Pause art in separate layers and name those layers so you'll be able to identify them for the script.

2. Group the progress bar objects and name the group so you'll be able to identify it for the script.


For example, see in the sample player file.

    Adi - Thanks for doing this. To make your script more visibile, please post it to the DPS Cookbook:

    That's genius.

    Thanks so much. Really time-saving script that's a must for DPS users.


    Just incase other Mac Users reading this thread may need the location of the Scripts folder clarifying it is: Adobe Illustrator CS6 / Presets / en_GB / Scripts.

    I'm sure it would be a similar path in older versions, and the en_GB bit may change depending on your chosen install region I guess....

    (sorry I don't install stuff on PCs often so am not as familiar with the file stucture but it may be similar)
