This script displays a palette with controls for setting the comments of project items and layers (in the selected composition). You can use this script to, for example, display the full file name for disk-based footage items.

The Template field can use literal characters or any of the following tokens:

  • [filename] — The full file name (with its path) of the disk-based footage item.
  • [fname] — The file name (without its path) of the disk-based footage item.
  • [fsize] — The file size (in bytes) of the disk-based footage item.
  • [w] — The pixel width of the footage item or layer.
  • [h] — The pixel height of the footage item or layer.
  • [par] — The pixel aspect ratio of the footage item or layer.
  • [fps] — The frame rate of the footage item or layer.

Note: This version of the script requires After Effects CS5 or later. It can be used as a dockable panel by placing the script in a ScriptUI Panels subfolder of the Scripts folder, and then choosing this script from the Window menu.
