    After Effects: path format of AVLayer->FootageItem->File

    imaginec35607075

      I want to read the file string for a footage item.

       

      This string is listed as "FootageItem file attribute" in http://blogs.adobe.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/48/files/2012/06/After-Effects-CS6-Scripting-G uide.pdf?file=2012/06/After-Ef…

       

      If I import something like:

       

      c:\assets\myfile.png

       

      into my composition, the Data Browser shows:

       

      /c/assets/myfile.png

       

      How does the "c:" get munged into "/c/" and how can I get the original string back? I need to extract this string programmatically and make use of it elsewhere, but I don't want to guess how to "demunge" it.
