Hello, I wrote a simple script to get the path of the proxy folder selected in the project panel.

 

fileTrg = app.project.selection[0].file;
folderObj = new Folder(fileTrg);
alert(folderObj.fsName)

 

However, this alert returns my AfterEffects system folder. like this

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects 2021\Support Files\tmp0000001

 

How to get correct proxy folder path? Thank you.

Not sure what you are trying to achieve.

If you have a project item selected and want the file object of the proxy instead of the original item, that should be

app.project.selection[0].proxySource.file;

according to the documentation linked by Mylenium

This will never work. Refer to the scripting guide for proper procedures:
