    Photoshop Scripting- Smart objects - How can I get the changes made to a layer that is a smart object

    LeoMichalek

      I'm making a script that deals with layers that point to the same smart object, I would like to know how I can get the changes made to a layers that point to the same smart object.

       

      example:
      I have a layer named Layer1 that is a smart object ( SmartObjectFile.psb)
      I now apply some transformation, scale, rotation to layer1. ( I have not touched the contents of the smart object file).
      I would like to know how much I moved, rotated,scaled the layer, in relation to the smart object, position,rotation & scale.

       

      How could I be able to get that info, the changes from the layer result vs the actual embeded/linked file used in the smart object, Photoshop must keep that info somewhere.

       

      Thanks!
