This Friday’s TGS is not only later, but I didn’t put a lot of time into it. I just started on a huge motion graphics video for work and I’m on a tight deadline. This one is really stretching my abilities and I’m feeling super stressed about getting it done, and making it as good as I’m able to.
While I wish I was a boss with After Effects I’m not going to lie and say I do everything by hand. I’m not afraid to get a script or something to lighten the load and get things done faster. So I thought I would list below some of the scripts I’m leaning on this past week.
AFTER EFFECTS SCRIPTS
Motion 2 by Mt. Mograph
“Motion v2 has a suite of over 20 tools with many uses that aren’t pictured above. From auto-sorting projects to cloning keyframes across multiple layers — there are many tools waiting to be discovered in Motion.”

Make motion lines and liquid things!
Squash & Stretch Pro by mamoworld tools

Ray Dynamic Color 2 by Sander van Dijk
“The industry-leading Color Palette for After Effects.”
Overlord by Battle Axe
“Overlord is a set of two panels that, when both open, create a portal between Illustrator and After Effects.” (AMAZING)
Rift – by Author: Michael Delaney
“Provides methods to shift, sequence, stagger, or randomize layers properties like in and out points, keyframes, markers and more, presented in a compact UI.”
