How do I get the filepath attribute from a sound strip of a video sequence ? I am talking about the sound strip that comes with a video file.

Sound strip : demo.001 bpy.data.scenes['Scene'].sequence_editor.sequences_all["demo.001"].filepath

==> 'SoundSequence' object has no attribute 'filepath'

I can get the filepath from the associated video strip.

Video strip : demo.avi bpy.data.scenes['Scene'].sequence_editor.sequences_all["demo.avi"].filepath

==> this works


You need to access the sound property of that strip which has the filepath property:

  • $\begingroup$ Values in the api are more often than not, represented in the UI as well, which may give hints as to where it might be in the UI. In this case, the filepath in the UI is listed as a property of a sound object (looking at its python tooltip), so I then looked for a sound property on the sequence strip. $\endgroup$ – Ray Mairlot Nov 13 '16 at 19:26
