How to check if a clip on my active timeline is Enabled or Disabled in Automation Blocks (plugin)

I have a Automation Blocks (Mamoworld Première Pro plugin) XML script that runs some actions on clips that are on my timeline. Actually, I only want to run the actions (read names & meta data) for clips that are actually ENABLED (thus, not disabled), cause these are the clips that are actually IN USE on the timeline.

 

In the Mamoworld documentation, I could not find how to check for the 'enabled' property.


The Première Pro API scripting docs do show that property:
https://ppro-scripting.docsforadobe.dev/item/trackitem.html#trackitem-disabled

 

How to check it within the Automation Blocks script? Help is appreciated.

Automation Blocks does not support this, yet, but I have it on my feature request list already. Actually more control over tracks and the missing project item attributes are pretty high on my list already.

@Mathias Moehl   Thanks.🙏 Any idea of an ETA/timeline for this implementations? ☺️ ( Cause now, the script is quite useless. Can't think of a workaround either. I just need it to skip disabled clips... 😐)

Time is hard to estimate - depends on how much unpredictable issues show up during the development.

 

1) in the Pr menu "Sequence->Simplify Sequence" create a duplicate of your sequence in which all disabled clips are removed
2) run your Automation Blocks tool on that simplified sequence

@Mathias Moehl  Thanks. Unpredictable issues, of course, hard to estimate. But maybe you can let us know when you estimate to start working on those feature requests. Already working on it, or.... probably not in the upcoming weeks/months...  would give some indication. 🙏

(The duplicate and 'Simplify Sequence' workaround would be usable if the Automation Blocks script could make this (and after, remove this) duplicate. Too many sequences and too many human errors possible to do it manually.)

 

PS. Automation Blocks is getting more and more awesome. 8)
