Hey guys I have seen a few scripts that apply custom pseudo effects on layers. can anyone help me as to how that was done?
Hi buddy. It's rather easy.
1. Apply Pseudo Effect to a layer.
2.Select this effect in timeline (make sure no other properties are selected) and save Animation Preset by going Animation -> Save Animation Preset.
If you want to be more fancy about it, take a look at this snippet Apply Pseudo Effect as Animation Preset — Bitbucket
Hope that helps.
the fancy way is exactly what i needed thanks so much. one last question how do you convert the ffx file to binary. when i open it in a text editor it gives me weird symbols and isnt legible.
The link is no longer available.
Do you still have that script?
I'm curious, will this 'fancy' method take care of the "Missing:" warning in cs6 and earlier?
The "Missing" message for a pseudoFX, for CS6 and earlier, was hardcoded to the app. The only way to prevent the "Missing" message was to first edit the PresetEffects.xml file, to point to the pseudoFX.
