User Guide > Scripting


Qt Script provides access to many of the functions supported in the interface. With Qt Script, you can automate a number of Animate Pro functions to speed the completion of various repetitive tasks.

To use scripts prepared by other users or for other scenes, you must first export the scripts from the originating scene and then import the scripts into a target scene.

You can add buttons to the Scripting Tools toolbar so that you can access them easily. They will appear to the right of the default Scripting Toolbar buttons.

To find more information about methods and functions for writing your own script, refer to the scripting help included in the software:
