I’ve been writing new scripts recently, mostly simple UI-less tools that do what they’re called, like show guide layers.jsx and remove disabled effects.jsx. There’s now a decent collection, and I’m adding new ones all the time. So rather than having to download them separately I’ve packaged all the ready-for release ones into a single zip file.
Also included are some more complex UI-based scripts that I’ve posted before. Here’s a list of all the currently included scripts, download below:
Scripts without a UI.
These scripts will show up in the File > Scripts> menu.
centerShapeLayerToContents.jsx – centers the anchor point of a shape layer to the center of the contents, and centers any path’s anchor points.
createNullAtAveragePosition.jsx – creates a null at the center of a bunch of layers
hide guide layers.jsx & show guide layers.jsx – turns off and on visibility for guide layers
shy locked layers.jsx – makes locked layers shy and hides shy layers in the timeline window
Mum-n-Dad.jsx – creates a null and makes it the parent of all the layers in a comp
quantiseKeyTimes.jsx – snaps all keyframes to frame boundaries
lightview camera.jsx– adds a camera to a light for ease of aiming
remove disabled effects.jsx – removes effects that are turned off
removeGap.jsx– ripple-deletes a gap in the timeline
Scripts with a UI
These scripts will show up in the Window menu
cloninate.jsx – clones or replaces layers recursively, so that their source is independent of the original
copy_multi.jsx – a very handy keyframe copier. Allows you to copy and paste a bunch of keys from different layers , as well as one-click copying and pasting time-reversed keys.
first-n-last.jsx – trims the comp to the first and / or last layers, selected layers, or the current playhead position. Also lets you recursively trim and extend nested layers in a comp at the same time.
in-n-out.jsx – a layer sequencer. Like the “Sequence Layers” keyframe assistant but with bells and whistles.
proxynator.jsx – lets you set multiple proxies in one click.
zap spatial tangents.jsx gets rid of pesky auto-generated tangents on keyframes.
Stop-n-Go.jsx – an emergency pause button for expressions
this-n-that.jsx – a sooper-dooper layer selection tool
