These are the instructions for the script -

I’ve made a script for After Effects to create comps for each tree and save you a bunch of time 😉

There’s a few steps you need to take before you get into After Effects and run the script to ensure everything works.

  • Rename the wides to ‘A’ + the number of the tree, you can do this in Prelude

  • In Prelude, ingest the closeup shots

  • Scan through the shots and add in & out points for the tilt up the tree

  • Make sure ‘Transfer Clips to Destination’ is checked and set the destination to whatever the day is and then a new ‘closeup edits’ folder

  • Click rename files

  • Set the custom increment to whatever the first tree number in the selection is

It’s important to check the numbers of the trees to see if any are in the wrong order.

So by this point you’ll have a wide and closeup shot for each tree, with the closeup being just the tilt up from bottom to top. Wide will be called ‘A’ + tree number, closeup will be called ‘B’ + tree number.

Now you can do the magic in after effects.

To use it, you need to:

  • Open the ‘Comp Maker.aep’ project

  • Import the shots you want to work on, both Wide and Closeup

  • Select the Wide shots

  • Click File -> Scripts -> Run Script File

  • Find the ‘Barcham Script.jsx’ in ripley, I made a script folder in the project structure

  • Marvel in it’s wonder

This is what the script does:

It takes 15 seconds of the wide shot (from 5 seconds in so that there’s no shake at the beginning). Then it adds the closeup with the matching tree number for its entire duration. That’s why you need to cut it down in Prelude beforehand. It then adds the wide shot in again for 15 seconds, starting from when it left off before. It also adds the side bars over the wide shots and a text layer which corresponds to the tree number.

PostScript is a page description language for printing that has absolutely nothing to do with After Effects.

Moving this thread to the proper community. 🙂
