Creating the image sequence for an audio file player from the Ai art can be a tedious task. And when you need to make a small adjustment it's twice as tedious.
A simple script that helps you output the play and pause sequences of PNGs from the Ai design in seconds.
Lately, I've been working on a demo for a new digital media distribution with DPS and found out how tedious it is to generate the skin PNGs for an audio file from Ai.
I wrote a little script that does it for me.
I thought "why not share it with others..."
So here's a link to my
DPS Audio Player SkinMaker script
using a link and not an uploaded file so you'll always have access to the latest build)
To install it, download the script and copy the JSX file to the Scripts folder of Ai.
compatible with Ai CS3 or later (Mac and PC).
To use it, select File > Scrips > DPS Audio Player SkinMaker.
Ai Design Guidelines:
designing the player in Ai, the following building guidelines must be kept:
1. Place the Play and Pause art in separate layers and name those layers so you'll be able to identify and select them in the script.
2. Group the progress bar objects and name the group so you'll be able to identify and select it in the script.
