Hi, I build an automation which works perfectly for 1 image
At the beginning of this automation I import the image as an item in my project, and at the end I delete the item (with a jsx script). So the automation is able to be called many times in a raw.
The point is that I would like to run this automation on 100 images. These 100 images are stored in the same folder. So I find a loop “files in external folder” I selected my folder but after that I would like to import the first image of the folder in my project as an item, how can I do that ? I didn’t find in the action, maybe Import MyImage, but after that dropdown is empty and doesn’t suggest “this file”
Thank you for reading
another user asked me similar question recently, but he wanted to import an image sequence so I modified my last answer to fit a simple import.
you almost got it right, you just had to pick “custom” and then “auto” in the last line after the “import” dropdown in line 4.
Besides, I also added the process of finding the new imported project item afterwards, I did this by deselecting all project items before importing a new file, and then searching the selected item in the project window, because we know it will be selected after importing it.
import all files.json (10.0 KB)
I know this process is a bit tricky and unintuitive, I will try to simplify it in the next update with new properties.
Please let me know if you have more questions,
Thank you very much I will try this solution
