There should be a way to get items using the selector:
aeq( "item[typeName='Footage']" )
@vaporstack mentioned filtering by footage type (e.g sequences). I don't know how that would be done, might have to use an additional filter function after calling
aeq('...'), as the selector only looks at attributes of the matched objects.
That might be something worth looking into, defining custom attributes to be used in the selector. For example
isSequence for item types, or
parentMatchName for properties.
