Download the file first, then import. PPro needs footage to be from either:
+ a local path
+ mapped network drive (Windows)
+ mounted network volume (Mac)
+ UNC path
Thank you bbb_999!
I have created a solution that downloads the image first, and it works very well.
I have another question not related to the first question:
Is it possible to save a frame of the current output of the active sequence? I have already tried the function exportCurrentFrameAsPNG in the sample project, but to me it looks like exportframepng is no longer a valid function in the DOM? Is this correct?
Is there any other way to get the output, ether as file or a byte array?
I want this export to happen without the users knowledge, as this image will be a preview on an external HTMLserver.
exportCurrentFrameAsPNG works great. Where are you seeing it fail? [Are you not calling app.enableQE() before using it?]
Not sure how you're going to get an image without the user knowing about it; PPro only calls panels in response to user interaction with panels.
