I’ll be your Copilot!

It’s 2013 and like many of you, I use After Effects a lot! One of my goals this year is to make working in After Effects more efficient, through Presets, Scripts, Camera Rigs… you name it!

Usually when I start creating something in After Effects with Element 3D, I like to create a Parallel Light, an Ambient Light and a Camera connected to a Null. What if there was a script or button that automatically did that all at once? As your Copilot, I want to stream-line your workflow so you can be creative!

We are working on creating various time-saving scripts and presets but we want to hear from you too. What would be your time-saving script? Big or small, explain it here and maybe we’ll build it for you!

At first, they seemed cool enough but after accidentally adding shape layers to my comps, instead of masks, I lashed […]
