User Created Expressions Menu

Scripting for After Effects

User Created Expressions Menu

Postby JackH on 02/20/2020, 12:37 pm

I have been using After Effects for many years. I use expressions a bit but I usually just cut and paste them from articles and forums. Now I have a few that I always use. is there a way to create a Expressions Menu much like the effects menu inside after effects which are all the ones I use all the time? When chosen It would either automatically copy the expression to the clipboard? Then I just hit paste to put it where I need it to go? Sorry if this seems newbie-ish but I am not the greatest technically.

I am aware of the expressions editor I don't want to edit I just want to apply one that is already good to go.

Right now I have them as text files on my computer but I hate having to hunt them down and copy and paste. I just want it to act like a plugin menu.
