{ mograph } Been using AE Global Renamer 2 for the last week on a heavy AE project and it’s been rock solid for me since the new update!

Rename items project wide in After Effects with as much ease or power as you want.

  • Option to only rename duplicates
  • Option to use Regular Expressions (Regex)

Rename anything!

  • Project panel item names
  • Layer names
  • Effect names
  • Text in Text Layers
  • Layer and Comp Marker
  • Expressions
  • Property names and children (Masks, Puppet Pins, Shape Layer properties, etc)
  • Render queue footage paths

Special replace keywords:

  • [layername] - will insert the layer name
  • [layerindex] - will insert the layer index. Tip: adding zeroes will pad [000layerindex] = 001,002,etc
  • [layercomment] - will insert the layer comment
  • [layer#name] - will insert the name of the layer # indicated. To insert the name of layer 5: [layer5name]
  • [compname] - will insert the comp name
  • [projectname] - will insert the project name
  • [date:E MMM dd, yyyy hh:mm a] - will insert the current date and time, this field uses the JavascriptToolbox.com date function which can be further customized. Please refer to their documentation for further reference: Date Formatting
  • [num=##,inc=##] - will insert a sequential padded number and increment by the optional inc, numbers can be negative, add leading zeros to pad.
    For example: [num=005,inc=-10] will start numbering at 15 and increase (decrease really) by -10 with 3 number padding: 015, 005, -005, etc

    Load Project or Template at Startup

    Will launch a project or template every time your start After Effects. For example, if you have a certain folder/file structure you like to keep for your AE projects, you can setup a virgin project the way you like it and save it as a template by giving it a .aet extension. Now every time you launch AE your custom setup will be automatically loaded.

    DuplicateLayers-n-UpdateExpressions

    Duplicates the selected layers and if any of the layers have expressions referencing any of the layers being duplicated it will update the expressions to point to the newly duplicated layers. Might make more sense if you watch the demo :-)
