Hello it's been a long time since my last post here. Since a lot has changed, i don't even know if I'm posting this in the right section.
I have this code here (script) for Adobe After Effects CS 6. It was working fine, until recently, when it started appear an undefined error at line 91 - here is the code:

Code:
var newFile = File.openDialog ("Select a file.");

if (newFile != null) {
    var wMap = readWeather(newFile, 0).contentAry;

    app.beginUndoGroup("Weather Map");
        setWeatherMap(wMap);
    app.endUndoGroup();
}

function readWeather(inputDoc, linesToSkip){
    var curDoc = new File(inputDoc);

    if (curDoc.exists) {
        var contentAry = new Array();
        curDoc.open("r");
   
        while (!curDoc.eof){
            contentAry[contentAry.length] = curDoc.readln();       
        }
   
        curDoc.close();
    }
    contentAry.splice(0, linesToSkip);
    var contentList = contentAry.join("_dpt_").toString().replace(new RegExp("_dpt_", "g"), "\r");
    contentAry = contentAry;
    return {
        'contentAry': contentAry,
        'contentList': contentList
    }
}

function setWeatherMap(content){
    try {
        if (content instanceof Array){
            var c, compName, curLine, line1, line2, line3, line4, pl;
            var theComps = [];
            var myFilesImp = [];
            var aryLength = content.length;
            var activeComp = app.project.activeItem;
            var imgDir = ("D:\\_kikac\\news 2015\\Kikac\\");
            var newAmt = 9;
            function processFolder(theFolder){
                for ( var i = 1; i <= newAmt; i++){
                    var importOpts = new ImportOptions( new File(theFolder + "w"+ i + ".mov"));
                    var importFiles = app.project.importFile (importOpts);
                    myFilesImp.push(importFiles);
                }
            }
            processFolder(imgDir);         
       
            var weather = 9;
   
            for (var i = 0; i < aryLength; i++){
                curLine = content [i];
                pl = parse(curLine); //

EDIT: The line is on the code where I set the footage size (It is marked with a comment in the code)

The only thing I can see is the error is happening on a divide line. Any chance that myfile.width or myfile.source.pixelAspect are zero? If so you would get a divide by zero error and that might be the cause.

    It is possible to automate it so that instead of moving to Archive if it has the Science, technology or sci tech tag that it gets archived there instead. I am considering a new Weird News Tag
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Please do. I'll try to tag the news appropriately when I get the chance.
