If you need to export files other than images please check out File To Binary Converter

This is a tool to aid script developers. What it does it convert a file into a binary text string that can then be embedded in the source code of a script. This allows a one file distribution without requiring an external folder to store the files. A common use for this is to have embedded images or icons in your .jsx file.

It works by retrieving the binary string of an image file (can be any kind of file authorized in a user interface for After Effects), but does not convert to hex or base 64. You can use it to get the binary string in order to embed the icons of a user interface in the script code. The size of the image to be converted and the time it takes will depend on the performance of your computer but small images or icons will convert very quickly. The script has several output options. You can get just the binary string or you can get .jsx examples of how to embed the code into your scripts.

New features in version 2:

  • Complete overhaul of the script intended for image encoding for the creation of user interface.
  • Loading a single or several images from a folder.
  • Adding filter options for the image type.
  • Addition of a size limitation of the image.
  • Display of all images available for processing.
  • Adding a color code depending on the size of images, to help the user in choosing those to be converted.
  • Generating a code for one or several images, and save the jsx file which can be used directly in After Effects.
