displayName bug for checkbox properties in Motion Graphics Templates via Extendscript
When accessing the properties of a Motion Graphics Template clip via Extenscript, the 'displayName' property for checkboxes / booleans shows up blank / empty. Other property types, such as sliders, color pickers, text etc.. all seems to show up fine.
for a future premiere pro update it would be super useful to have checkbox names included in the 'displayName' property, or alternatively an additional 'name' property where it can be accessed instead.
Would also be useful to have 'id' and 'type' properties (e.g. checkbox, slider, group, text) for each ComponentParam of a mogrt. Useful in terms of 3rd party tools being able to accurately copy / paste / customise and update properties across multiple copies of a mogrt within a sequence (similar to the way you can copy and paste effects to multiple clips)
should this idea be posted as a separate 'feature' suggestion?
I dumped the display names from that timeless .mogrt classic, 'Basic Lower Third':
param 0 is named Text
param 1 is named Main Title
param 2 is named
param 3 is named Secondary Title
param 4 is named
param 5 is named
param 6 is named Globe Animation
param 7 is named Rotation Speed
param 8 is named
param 9 is named Longitude Offset
param 10 is named Latitude Offset
param 11 is named Angle Offset
param 12 is named
param 13 is named Styling
param 14 is named Main Color
param 15 is named Highlight Color
param 16 is named Main Text Color
param 17 is named Secondary Text Color
Further investigation indicates that checkbox params don't have a displayName property; we keep their param descriptions on the other side of the checkbox, to improve clarity.
