ScriptUI-Controls

This is written for CS3 but should work also in CS4:

To add scripts that can later be added as a panel in the user interface, create a folder in the After Effects CS3 ‘Scripts’ folder called ScriptUI Panels

Example:
ScriptsScriptUI Panels

Then, any .jsx, .js or .jsxbin scripts that you add in there can be launched from the ‘Window’ menu in AE CS3.

Once you have started a script once, and the scripts undocked window appears, you can dock it to any panel you like by dragging it using the dotted symbols left to the little arrow button.

The great thing is that next time you start AE CS3 the script window will remain tabbed where you put it.

Good luck writing and adding scripts to AE CS3. Please leave feedback if you found this helpful!
