inserting Data into CustomProp array

Hhmm serendipity happens

I was reading through all the dict entries on customproperties and custom property sets… a bit esoteric at first.

There was no explicity guide “how to create a custompropertyset”

But when I went back to my image and check… apparently this:


on mouseUp

   put the rect of the last image into tRect

   set the uMyEffects["startsize"] of the last image to tRect

   CheckEffects



end mouseUp


created a custompropertyset


and this extracts it


command CheckEffects

   put the customProperties["uMyEffects"] of the last image into tEffects

   put the keys of tEffects

end CheckEffects


OK… I’m good to good, but any advice in this area is appreciated.

What is the best practice for progressively adding data to a customProperty that you want to be an array?  both inserting new keys into that property as well as changing values in the existing keys.

In this case i want an image(s) in a stack to have a custom property containing the necessary info for Animation Engine to do some effects. This seems like a good way to store this vs saving it anywhere else.
