This script creates, sets, or unsets proxies for the selected footage and composition items.

If using a still or movie proxy, proxies will be rendered using existing render settings and output module template, preferably Best Settings / Photoshop for stills, and Draft Settings / Lossless with Alpha for movies.

Note: If you want to use a still-frame proxy, make sure to set the output module template to a still-image format. Conversely, if you want to use a movie proxy, set the template to a movie file format.

If using a file, you will be asked to select the file when you click the Set Proxy button. If using stills or movies, you are asked to select an output folder.

Note: This version of the script requires After Effects CS5 or later. It can be used as a dockable panel by placing the script in a ScriptUI Panels subfolder of the Scripts folder, and then choosing this script from the Window menu.
