It took as long to update the PhotoShop scripts as it did to write them in the first place.  Which is what I thought.

Download the updated scripts for the Scenarist format PSD for IGEdit HDMV animated buttons here

 

What's new in V 2.0:

Scenarist Help.jsx:
   New script to contain the help / instruction text.
   Makes the other displays smaller by moving help to a common location.
   Accessed by the Help button or may be run separately.

 

Scenarist Target.jsx:

   All error messages now appear on the data entry window and the user entered values are retained.
   A Help button has been added to display the help window.
   All input field initial values are at the top of the script and can be modified for local requirements.

 

Scenarist Buttons.jsx:
   All error messages now appear on the data entry window and the user entered values are retained.
   A Help button has been added to display the help window.
   All input field initial values are at the top of the script and can be modified for local requirements.
   A new Select Layers? option:
      All layers to be selected.
      The total of the button states to be selected from the top of the layers stack.
      No change in the layers selection.
   A new BOG Name? option:
      Clear the BOG Name field.
      Make BOG Name Equal to Button name.
      No change in the BOG Name.
   No processing is performed until all field validation is complete.
      The one exception is the layer selection, if any is requested, which is required to check against the total states.
   A new button added to the Target Document Select window (displayed if the default target document is not found).
      Allows for processing to continue but no copy is done.

 

Known problems / oddities:

The following is due to either the scripting language / operation or PhotoShop requirements.
These situations may or may not occur in versions later than CS3 or others may appear.

 

PhotoShop does not allow changes to the document while a script is running.  
   Click Cancel to close the script with no changes.  Any entered data will be lost.
   Make needed changes.
   Rerun the script. 

 

While scroll bars are allowed in the windows, they are very limited.  There is no provision for scrolling the entire window.  Therefore, if your screen resolution does not allow you to see the entire window, find Times New Roman.  Following that is the font size, in the original it is 18.  Reduce the font size or increase your screen resolution.  However, the help window should be the only one with a problem.

 

Groups copied to the target document are placed under the layer selected there at the top of the group not at the bottom.
Therefore, it is suggested that buttons be processed in reverse order as they appear on the menu to make later work easier.

 

If Select Layers will be set to Total, be sure that at least one layer in the work document is selected before running the script.  If none are selected or the Select/Deslect layers was performed to have no layers selected, the resultant selection will not be as desired.  If an error is returned, clicking OK or pressing Enter again should correct the problem if no other errors occur.

 

Create Safe area guides?

Create Center guides?

Select Layers?
BOG Name?
...copy to target PSD?
these fields will only allow the acceptable values to be entered.  However, if a not allowed value is entered, the field will be blank.  While the default value could be used in that case, it is not to avoid confusion.

 

To exit the Target Document Select window normally, click on OK.  Pressing Enter will have no effect.

 

Hopefully these updates will make use of the scripts a little easier, a little less frustrating and a little simpler.
