    How can I hide an effect parameter?

    SirPentor75

      I have an effect with a couple deprecated parameters, and other effects with hidden parameters I set programmatically. I don't want the customer to be able to see them. Setting PF_PUI_NO_ECW_UI in the parameter's ui_flags removes it from the effect window, but not from the timeline window. Setting AEGP_DynStreamFlag_HIDDEN seems to do the trick, but I'm unclear as to when to set it. Currently I'm setting it during param update, but that doesn't appear to cover (for example) the case of opening an existing file.

       

      Is there a well-known way of handling this? Thanks.
