Return value



addChannel, addChannelColor, addChannelImage, deleteChannel, psdFileName, snapShotImage, uvSnapPostionTop
Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
addChannel(adc) string createmultiuse
Adds an empty layer set with the given name to a already existing PSD file.
addChannelImage(aci) [string, string] createmultiuse
(M) Specifies the image file name whose image needs to be added as a layer to a given layer set which is the first string.
addChannelColor(acc) [string, float, float, float] createmultiuse
(M) Specifies the filled color of the layer which is created in a layer set given by the layer name.
snapShotImage(ssi) string create
Image file name on the disk containing UV snapshot / reference image.
uvSnapPostionTop(uvt) boolean create
Specifies the position of UV snapshot image layer in the PSD file. "True" positions this layer at the top and "False" positions the layer at the bottom next to the background layer in the PSD file
psdFileName(psf) string create

Python examples

import maya.cmds as cmds

# Create a Photoshop file with an image layer from a disk image file
cmds.psdTextureFile(xr=512, yr=512, ifn=('C:\\tex.jpg', 'layerSet1', 1), psf='C:\\final.psd')
# // Saved file: C:\final.psd #

# Create a poly plane
cmds.polyPlane(w=10, h=10, sx=10, sy=10, n='pPlane1')

# Create a snapshot file containing the UVs of pPlane1
cmds.uvSnapshot(n='C:\\uvSnapshot.iff', xr=512, yr=512, o=True)
# // Saved file: C:\uvSnapshot.iff #

# Edit the "final.psd" file which we have created, add a UV snapshot layer from snapshot file and an image layer from disk image file
cmds.psdEditTextureFile(aci=('layerSet2', 'C:\\tex1.jpg'), ssi='C:\\uvSnapshot.iff', uvt=1, psf='C:\\final.psd')
