Shortcut Key Reference

More Views


Looking for a shortcut key in After Effects? Well how about having access to a list of over 600+ shortcut keys without leaving the After Effects environment? Shortcut Key Reference v2 to the rescue. Give yourself an added advantage by learning shortcut keys for most of your everyday tasks. You’re a veteran AE user? Well it doesn’t hurt to have a quick reminder of a valuable shortcut key that maybe you didn’t use enough to memorize. I’ve been using AE for eleven years now myself and I am always finding new shortcut keys I didn’t realize were there.

Shortcut_Key_Reference_v2 is compatible with CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS5.5. It includes both the Dropdown List and Listbox versions from the 2007 release, in one script. You can easily toggle which version you would like to view just by clicking a button. With the Listbox version, you can find shortcuts faster by typing in the search field.


If the Shortcut file is incorrect and you need to re-choose the file, just click the "?" to bring up the help popup and click  the "Select Shortcut File" button. This will allow you to choose the file again without relaunching the script.

Known issues: CS5 & CS5.5 Dropdown list menus are limited by the size of the script panel boundaries (see images below). So having a narrow panel height when script is docked, may limit the amount of items you are able to view at once. This is an After Effects program limitation beyond my control. CS3 and CS4 does not have this issue.
