{ 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.

Features

  • Super tiny UI, dock it anywhere!
  • Save to presets
  • Unlimited Search/Replace pairs
  • Add Suffix and Prefix
  • Replace all at once or one item at a time
  • Incremental numbering with padding option
  • Option to only rename duplicates
  • Option to use Regular Expressions (Regex)
  • NEW: hold down the SHIFT key when selecting 'Add preset' to reveal the setting file in the filesystem. You can then copy that file to same location on the other machine to share or backup presets.

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
