Script to open an image in a plane with its dimensions and shadeless

Using blender to do some motion graphics or to do stuff like in after fx takes a bit more effort.

One of the problems is that we loose to much time

-creating a new plane
-creating a new material for this plane
-adding a texture to this material
-making this texture an image texture
-loading the image or video we want
-if it has alpha changing the values so it works
-and making it shadeless

It would be cool if there was a script were you could just load maybe from the script UI the image and it would automaticlly get assigned to a plane with the right dimensions , shadeless and if it has alpha with the right alpha settings so it works.

This would save alot of time and it would make things faster.

I dont know how to program .

Can someone code this ? or tell me how to do it ?

thanx.

I believe there are already a few scripts to do this. Use the search feature and check the blender wiki. If they are missing some features, you should provide the script that closest meets what you are after.

Also this should have been posted in the scripting part of the forum.
