If there are scripts that are ready for you to use, you must first transfer the *.js files from the computer where the scripts were created to the one you intend to use. Then you can use the Script Editor to import the *.js files into Storyboard Pro.
When working with Storyboard Pro, scripts that you created while working on a scene or imported are available for all other projects created on the same computer; there's no need for any kind of transfer or import. You can find your custom, default, and imported scripts here:
|•||Windows: C:\Users\[user_name]\AppData\Roaming\Toon Boom Animation\Toon Boom Storyboard Pro\1200-scripts|
|•||Mac OS X: /Users/[user_name]/Library/Preferences/Toon Boom Animation/Toon Boom Storyboard Pro/1200-scripts|
On Mac OS X, the Library folder is a hidden folder. To display the display the folder, hold down the Alt key.
- Copy the
*.jsfiles you want to transfer onto a USB key, or use the transfer method of your choice.
- Transfer and save the
*.jsfiles onto the computer you intend to use. Be sure to save them in a logical location. You can save them directly in the default locations indicated above, in which case they will automatically appear in the Script Editor. If you prefer not to mix them with the default scripts, save them to a different location.
- In Storyboard Pro, start a new scene
or open an existing one.
- Add the Script Editor view to your workspace.
- From the Script Editor menu, select File > Import Script.
- Select the
*.jsfile and click Open.
The script is imported and appears in the Files list of the Script Editor.
