Scripting, Project.importSequences() Error

I'm trying to import a sequence using 

Project.importSequences()

as described here: https://ppro-scripting.docsforadobe.dev/general/project.html?highlight=import%20sequence#project-imp...

 

This is what I did:

 

 

 

path = "E:\\folder\\import.prproj"

sequenceIDs = ['sequence-1']
app.project.importSequences(path, sequenceIDs)

 

 

But I get this errror:

 

 

TypeError: importSequences() takes 2 positional arguments but 3 were given

 

 

 
Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

Your path variable needs to 'escape' the backslashes; "E:\\path\\untitled.prproj".

It looks like you're trying to pass sequence.name, instead of an actual sequence.sequenceid. 

You can get the id of a sequence like so:

 

var templateSequenceID = mytemplateSequence.sequenceid;

Thanks for the suggestion.

I tried this as you suggested:
var templateSequenceID = mytemplateSequence.sequenceid


But got this error:
AttributeError: 'Sequence' object has no attribute 'sequenceid'

 

I also tried:

var templateSequenceID = mytemplateSequence.id

 

And that gave me:
1

 

So I tried:

path = "E:\\folder\\import.prproj"

sequenceIDs = [1]
app.project.importSequences(path, sequenceIDs)



But that also gave me the error:

TypeError: importSequences() takes 2 positional arguments but 3 were given

 

It could be related, so I'm also facing an issue with:

Project.newSequence()

to create a new Sequence object based on the specified preset (.sqpreset file).

 

Here's what I did:

name = 'Sequence 01'

pathToSequencePreset = "C:\\Path\\Template.sqpreset"

app.project.newSequence(name, pathToSequencePreset)

 

Here is the error I get:
AttributeError: 'Project' object has no attribute 'newSequence'

 

Thank you again for any help!

I checked the documentation again and fixed the code. Specifically, capitalizing "ID" in Sequence.sequenceID, and I'm now able to get the sequence ID e.g. "2714b58d-10a0-4801-9646-8a4f6f1e2a98".

 

But, when I use it for Project.importSequence(), I'm still getting the error:

TypeError: importSequences() takes 2 positional arguments but 3 were given

 

Here is what I tried:

sequenceIDs = ["2714b58d-10a0-4801-9646-8a4f6f1e2a98"]
path = r"E:\path\project.prproj"
app.project.importSequences(path, sequenceIDs)

Okay, I've tried that and it still doesn't work.

TypeError: importSequences() takes 2 positional arguments but 3 were given

 

Seems like I'm the only one facing this issue, as a friend tried it on his machine and was able to make it work.

I think those additional 'arguments' are your string, without escaped backslashes...

Here's what I did:

app.project.newSequence(name, pathToSequencePreset)

 

See PProPanel's example code for making a sequence from a preset.
