I’ve been diving into scripts/panels and then getting my feet wet with C++ Adobe After Effects API related development. The information is nicely scattered like some sort of cryptic maze to test the mind but getting there.
I have a CEP panel, for a nice UI design. Which has some useful functionality.
I wanted to include some more advanced C++ plugin abilities, so am passing some info via a text file created via a JSX file as part of the CEP extension to the C++ After Effect Plugin part, and it’s able to get some information from the text file. plus delete the text file once read… Which is great.
However, before going to far with this, I wanted to hear if there were any newer more elegant ways of passing info from a CEP Panels (and JSX file) to the C++ plugin?
If the above approach is ok, it is wise/ok to have the temp text file saved to the home directory of the user? or is there another more common route here?
Many thanks… I’m loving all of this… despite the endless slow work and bug testing.
