Smudge tool options

Postby » Sun Jan 08, 2017 7:20 pm

I've used a script by Tom Ruark to change brush options and would like to be able to do the same with the smudge tool options. I've been partially successful with this script:

function setSmudgeOptions(tool,mode,strength,pfs){
// tool
var idset = stringIDToTypeID( "set" );
var desc226 = new ActionDescriptor();
var idnull = stringIDToTypeID( "null" );
var ref170 = new ActionReference();
var idSmTl = stringIDToTypeID(tool);
ref170.putClass( idSmTl );
desc226.putReference( idnull, ref170 );
var id12 = stringIDToTypeID( "to" );
var desc5 = new ActionDescriptor();
// strength
var id13 = stringIDToTypeID( "strength" ); // Set Smudge tool Strength
var id14 = stringIDToTypeID( "percentUnit" );
desc5.putUnitDouble( id13, id14, strength);
// blend mode
var id15 = stringIDToTypeID( "mode" );
var id16 = stringIDToTypeID( "blendModel" );
var id17 = stringIDToTypeID( mode);
desc5.putEnumerated( id15, id16, id17 );
// pressure for size
desc5.putBoolean( stringIDToTypeID( "usePressureOverridesSize" ), pfs );

var id18 = stringIDToTypeID( "null" );
desc226.putObject( id12, id18, desc5 );
executeAction( idset, desc226, DialogModes.NO );


Everything works except for the Strength setting. I've tried the function with "strength" changed to "opacity" (and uppercase variations).

I would very much appreciate some help (I don't know where to find this sort of information). I've looked through this forum and also the Photoshop Scripting forum without any luck.
