    UI scripting with applescript: Is it possible?

    Beagleston

      I'm attempting to use applescript to do some automation with file setup and importing with Premiere Pro CC. The company I'm working for is switching from Final Cut 7, and every button and window can be selected with the system's Accessibility controls.

       

      I've attempted to run Xcode's UI element inspector, but it doesn't recognize anything in the interface, except the apple standard buttons like close and minimize.

       

      Neither does the Voiceover utility recognize any elements within a program window.

       

      Has anyone had any luck accessing anything other than the menu items via UI scripting? How are we supposed to externally intereact with the interface?

       

      Sticking with applescript is not a necessity.
