It is. I don't know if your way will work, but I know it is possible to automate video creation. In my last job, we had a server set up with a trigger for aerender. Once launched this would export 8 v

I don't think you can call a variable name in javascript. If, however, you put an object in there, like opacity, it works just fine. I think you need an object that has the .name and the .value proper

Re: set a function to call up a certain code based on a user dropdown choice

I don't think that the if else is the problem. You should call the selection by pixel_size.selection. However, when i have multiple choices, i usually use a switch statement. Easier to follow for me.
