Dear PPro plugin creators,

a part of my plugin generates png sequence with a given path.

How can I import this png-sequence from inside of my plugin?

I see no mention if this in SDK importer plugin.

 

The idea is that when the user clicks OK button, first: a png sequence with transparent background is generated, second: it is inserted into the main track as a clip at a given instance of time (without changin the resolution, size, fps, just as is).

Part 1 is already implemented but now I don't know how to implement part 2.

Is there some particular simple method in PPro?

Yaroslav.

A CEP panel could import the .png sequence, but there's no way for an Importer plug-in to do so.

Correct, PPro uses Importers to get frames and audio from a given imported file, but doesn't allow for them to import other unrelated media into the project.  Here's PProPanel, the PPro example panel: https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/Samples/tree/master/PProPanel Here's documentation for PPro's ExtendScript API, used by panels: https://ppro-scripting.docsforadobe.dev Feel free to ask questions here!

Dear Bruce,

thanks for the immediate reply! Do you mean that the import is impossible programmatically from the plugin without intermуdiate CEP panel? 

I'm sorry for my ignorance, where can I read about CEP panel?
