Scripting of 3rd party filters

Is it possible to call a 3rd party filter using javascript in Photoshop CS2. I really need a way to way something like Alien Splat with a javascript - or to achieve the same effects some other way.

Any ideas?

I'm pretty JavaScript lame, so take this with a grain of salt...

A simple fix would be to write an action that invokes the plugin, then call the action via JavaScript command. This assumes the plugin is PS action compliant, that is, it will perform the intended task unattended via an action.

Option B: Engage the Script Listener function and examine/decode the JS statements PS2 writes to the log file when you invoke your plugin of choice.

Danny nailed it. But be prepared to be disappointed. I've found few 3rd party plugins that provide necessary support.
