rd: Partial

This script displays a panel with controls for setting the pixel aspect ratio of the selected footage items. Basically, a batch mode for setting PAR in the Interpret Footage dialog box.

If a proxy is active for a footage item, the operation will be applied to the main footage, not proxy. This is a limitation.

Note: After the operation finishes, the info appearing next to the selected footage item in the Project panel might not update to reflect the guessed setting, so deselect and then reselect it to view the current setting.

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.
