Scripting: System commands

Hello–

Is there any was to “shell out” from Animate? I would like to be able to make system calls through scripting but it does not look like this is possible.

Thanks,

This sounds perfect. ‘External’ is not mentioned in the Scripting Guide docs–any idea where I can find out more info?

In Animate Pro, there’s a module in the module library called the External module. This module allows you to run an external application that can be called through a command line or shell. Is this what you’re trying to do?

Download the Animate Pro PLE - and then take a look in the Enhancing with Effects section of the User Guide. There it has a description of the External module. :slight_smile:
