I would like to know how i can list installed effects in after effects with a script?
Without create a comp, how can i know if an effect is ever installed.
If you have CS5.5, you can use app.effects to get an array of objects, each of which has displayName, category, and matchName attributes.
one more thing app.effects not only report the effects installed but also presests and effects that do not appear in the effetcs menu anymore like Lens Blur
i only thought that it was good to know that too
Does it exists on CS3 version?
Unfortunately No ,as far as I know this property was added in CS5.5
