Hi Everybody,

 

I have a 12-page document tht needs animating in Animate. So I need to export all photos, arrows, headers, textboxes, etc. as full-page PNGs, NOT cropped element PNGs, and NOT full-page flat PNGs. Like every single element isolated as a document-size PNG.  

 

Is this possible at all, if so that would save me a LOT of hassle.

 

Thanks so much for any suggestions!

// Set resolution options
  var rp = [72,150,300];

    app.pngExportPreferences.pngExportRange = PNGExportRangeEnum.EXPORT_RANGE;

// Resolution Select Dialog
  var w;

	   w.sText = add('statictext', undefined, 'Select Export Resolution:');
	   w.dropdown = add ( 'DropDownList',undefined,undefined,{items:rp});
	   w.btnOK = add('button', undefined, 'OK');
    };
  w.dropdown.selection=0; 
  w.show();  
  
  // Set resolution
	  var x = 0;
	  x = x + w.dropdown.selection;
    app.pngExportPreferences.exportResolution = rp[x];

// SElECT Folder locations

             app.pngExportPreferences.pageString = pname;
      
             //add a 0 in from on less than 10
             if (p<9){var pnm=0;}else{var pnm=""}

                //ACTUALLY EXPORTING
                app.activeDocument.exportFile(
                 ExportFormat.PNG_FORMAT, 
                File(mySaveFolder.fsName + "/" + app.activeDocument.name.split(".indd")[0]  + "_"+ pnm + pname + "_" + itm +".png"),
                false, 
                   );
                //SET VISIBILITY
                myDoc.pages.item(p).pageItems.item(itemexport).visible = false;
        }  
      }
      
       app.activeDocument.close(SaveOptions.no);
    }
