perfect. That did the trick. I didn't know about that site. I found a couple other scripts I'll probably use often as well.
I actually found, what could be that script, at adobe exchange as well, but just like most of adobe's links, it doesn't work.
What's with Adobe's web stuff seeming to never work anyway? I would think they would want to make sure and pay careful attention to that stuff since much of their business relies on their web creating tools. Makes me feel like their software will be broken too. haha
Andy, what link is broken? Where exactly?
maybe he means exchange sites like these
maybe people are annoyed because you have to register if you want to donwload a script and there is mostly no link to the Authors/Creators site. Maybe a referrer would be nice or somehing.
ok a Google search would do a quick find, but, you know, you have to register, login, here, there, somwhere the whole day, on and on.
however. i'm happy that someone like Jeff Almasol (he is not someone) is giving his free time to write his scripts for free.
very nice guy.
The download link gives a popup, but it doesn't start downloading. then you click on the "click here if it doesn't automatically start downloading" and that doesn't do anything either.
I thought maybe it just didn't work through our network so I had a coworker try it from Italy. He had the same problem, so I had my girlfriend try from home. Still nothing. Sounds like a dead link to me.
Your comment that "just like most of adobe's links, it doesn't work" made me think that you were seeing more than one problem. If you are, please leave comments on the problematic pages. (Go ahead and mention them on this forum, too, if you like.)
I'll go ahead and remove the one that you just mentioned.
The usual way that we cull dead items from the Exchange is to read the comments that people leave on the items in the Exchange. We don't know what to fix if you don't tell us what's broken. Keep in mind that the Exchange is a place for user-submitted content. If a user doesn't maintain their entry, there's not a lot that we can do other than take the entry down.
If the original files aren't stored on the adobe server then it would be really nice to show the actual link. Often times the files Are updated, so we could just go to the original site and find it there if the link is broken. Adobe hasn't really been "on top of" the upgrading of their community. It's sometimes hard to log in, so I don't really blame people for not updating their exchange links.
Some of the usability there was probably designed by the same engineers who used the exr and png alpha for transparency in photoshop. haha. They STILL think they are right too, which makes it even more funny.
After Effects CC (12.1) adds an option in the Precompose dialog box for this, to trim the precomposition duration to the duration of selected layers.
