This script displays a palette with controls for sorting layers based on specific criteria.

If using only the Selected Layers in Comp (i.e., not all layers), the selected layers are moved to the top of the comp as part of the sorting process. If sorting by Layer Name, layers that have not been renamed (i.e., their names appear enclosed in brackets), the brackets will sort those layers before renamed layers.

Note: The In and Out points of negatively stretched layers are identified by their positions in comp time (i.e., their out times are treated as In points, and vice versa).

Note: This version of the script requires After Effects CS5 or later. It can be used as a dockable panel by placing the script in a ScriptUI Panels subfolder of the Scripts folder, and then choosing this script from the Window menu.

    rd: Render Layers

    Renders each of the selected layers separately. You might find it useful if layers represent different versions of an effect or different parts of an effect that you want to render as separate "passes" for flexibility in how they get composited.

    rd: Slicer

    Displays a palette with controls for slicing the selected layer into a grid. Slicing works best with non-rotated layers. If a parent null layer is created, it will be anchored at the layer's current anchor point.
