Is there a "simple" way to export all generation variations?

I have a graphic that I have sent through various generated variations to alter its look and style. I'd like to save a png of all of those different variations, however the only way that I've found to do this is by individually revealing each generation layer and each variation and saving them one-by-one.

 

I've looked at the built-in Automate and Scripts options, but none of them seem to offer the ability to export layers of an open document, let alone the different variations.

 

Aside from writing my own script to do this (I don't have the knowledge to do this), is there a way to automate this process that I'm overlooking?

You can try this. 

Screenshot 2024-02-23 at 13.05.41.pngScreenshot 2024-02-23 at 13.10.25.png

// create png for each variation of generative fill layers;
// 2024, use it at your own risk;
if (app.documents.length > 0) {
    var thedoc = activeDocument;
    var docName = thedoc.name;
    try {
    var basename = docName.match(/(.*)\.[^\.]+$/)[1];
    var origDocPath = thedoc.fullName;
    var docPath = thedoc.path;
    }
    catch (e) {
    var basename = thedoc.name;
    var docPath = "~/Desktop"
    };
// process layers;
    var theSOs = collectSmartObjects ();

Maybe someone else has created a Script for this yet, but Actions etc. just won’t suffice. 

 

Please provide the file or at least meaningful screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Properties, Options Bar, …) visible.

I can't provide the actual graphic (IP reasons), but I've included a redacted graphic, if that helps. The gist is that I've followed this tutorial to generate variations of that graphic in different art styles (watercolor, crayon, oil etc.) into separate layers. For each of these layers, I have dozens of variations on that theme.

 

So starting from the top, I have the top-most layer enabled then one by one I click through the variation results, quick export as .png, append -001 to the filename, then rinse and repeat on the next variation. 

 

Once I've gone through all of the variations on a layer, I'll hide the top layer and move to the next and go through the same process. There appears to be a 60 generation limit per layer, so I couldn't do as many as I needed on a single layer.

So you want all Layers underneath to be included in the exported files? (You didn’t mention hiding the other Layers when you talked about the top-most layer.) 

 

Please provide screenshots that illustrate the »start«-state of the file and the intended results (naturally not all, just a sample).

Sorry if my initial explanation wasn't clear. The layers are just groups of variations. So in practical terms, it's really just whatever is the top-most visible layer that is exported. Not that the each export is a combination of layers below it. Hiding the top layer is just the most practical method for me to work through the process manually. The layers are just "batches" of variations, not components of the final graphic.

 

All layers visible>Quick Export as PNG>Rename with -###>Save>Cycle to variation 2>Quick Export>Rename>Save>Cycle (etc. etc. through 60 variations)

Hide top layer>Quick Export>Rename>Save>Cycle>Quick Export

 

The start state is, itself, just a single .png exported from Illustrator.

 

Hopefully the attached helps visualize it better.

There are initially 3 generative fill variations stored per layer. An action or script can select each variation in turn on the active layer.

 

It then comes down to how you wish to output the result... Is it just the selected layer containing generative fill content? Or is it a combination of the generative layer + one or more additional layers?

 

Would the PNG be saved with the generative fill prompt (layer name) as the file name? Would it be saved with the document name + layer name? What location to save to?

 

What else that I haven't thought of above?

No additional layers, just whatever is visible.

That would be a plus, however I'd just be happy to have them named "document_name+(-Number Sequence)"

@boondock – I'll leave this with @c.pfaffenbichler as I am in the middle of other projects and I think that he can do a better job than I can with some of the more advanced AM code required for this task.

@boondock – To confirm... One layer at a time, with 60 variations in each layer? So if you had 3 layers, then you would have 180 saved images?

 

Does each layer always have 60 variations, or does this vary?

 

Does the file contain layer sets?

 

Or is it just a variable number of generative fill smart object layers?

 

No special Background layer or other layer kinds?

Hey Script Experts,

 

Apologies for the radio silence. Came down with the flu and haven't quite recovered yet so I've been out of the office for the last two weeks.

To answer your questions:
-Yes, one layer at a time with 60 variations each.

-I guess this one is up to me. I can create 60 variations per layer intentionally if necessary to make the process work easier.

-By layer sets, do you mean layer comps? If so, then no.

-Because I was playing around with this, currently some layers have fewer than 60 (so variable) but I could force to 60 if necessary.

-Nope, no special backgrounds. Just a simple circle png graphic over an alpha channel

I see you've provided three blocks of code below. Was the main one edited to include the improved bits or do I need to copy/paste them where they fit in to the main body?

 

Thanks again for your attention to this! I'm excited to try it out! 🙂

@c.pfaffenbichler – I knew that you would work your magic here, I was spinning my wheels just working out how to increment the selectGeneratedVariation idindex value!

 

Have you figured out how to identify a generative fill as a special type of a smart object? Previously there were only linked or embedded smart objects, but what if one wishes to differentiate between the 3 types?

It seems possible to determine whether a SO is Generative Fill, but in the previous Script I took the lazy route with a try-clause instead. 

// 2024, use it at your own risk;
if (app.documents.length > 0) {
    alert (isGenerativeFillLayer ())
};
