Adobe Premiere Scripting Guide

Mar 25, 2013 7:30 AM

Tags: #import #scripting

Hello, I have to write some scripts for Premiere. It will import, cut and set rendering. I can do it in after effects, because there is Adobe After Effects Scripting Guide for CS6.pdf , but I cant find anything similar for Premiere But scripting in premiere is possible. I can find some commands in Data Browser in ExtendScript Toolkit editor, but I dont know how can I use it. (Import, edit etc.) Is for Premiere any scripting manual ? If not, why? Scripting in Premiere is not official supported? Thanks.

    But scripting in premiere is possible.

     

    You sure?  I thought it wasn't.

    Hi CenekStrichel,

     

    Since there is no scripting subforum, the Premiere Pro SDK subforum is a better place to ask about scripting at this time.  I'll move your thread over.

    Hello CenekStrichel,

     

    how can you send commands to premiere with the JSX-scripts? I also need this way to code some plugins.

     

    I just can't find a way to send the jsx code to premiere, 'cause there is no menuitem like in after effects/File-->Scripts.

     

    Please help!

     

    Best Regards

    Manuel

    Woooow you saved my life I thought I had to code all the stuff i need in C/C++.

     

    Yeah I know, I found a useful jsx-file called rd_GimmePropPath.jsx - this little script (including a GUI) can read all the propertys you need to call the text elements and stuff in after effects - maybe it can help to find something for premiere too.

    In after effects it worked quite well I'm trying it now for premiere.

     

    I also need to compose a full sequenz from jsx - including intro, effects, blending, outro and an after effects mov-file in between.

    I let you know if I can find something useful in after effects I made it step by step maybe it will also work here.

     

    thanks for your answer!

    Yeah only for After Effects tried it for myself.

     

    Do you know how to call the items of the project?

    for(var key in app.project){

                alert(key);

        }

     

    try this to get the propertys of the project, if you found something useful edit the collection where you are reading the propertys - found the child members of the items (app.project.rootItem.children)!

    yeah it took me half a day to find out that all the stuff is in the data browser

    so that's what i found out yesterday:

     

    you can add an array of files like this:

     

    var myFiles = ["C:\\'theFilePath'\\File.mov", "C:\\'theFilePath'\\File2.mov", ...];

    app.project.importFiles(myFiles);

     

    and all files will be added to the project browser.

     

    also you can add a sequence to the project like this:

     

    app.project.createNewSequence("nameOfTheSequence","xxx");

    I don't know which param I had to choose for the "xxx", but it works if you set it empty.

     

    I'm currently looking for adding the files to the sequence, but I have to try some stuff till i find it out.

     

    Let me know if you find out something new
