What does it do?
The align tool in After Effects is broken — it's missing key features and doesn't always do what you think it's going to do.
Put simply, everything you can do with Illustrator's align tool, is now possible right inside After Effects.
Align to Key Layers
Align or distribute layers to key objects, or more specifically, to key layers — just select the key layer first, followed by the layers that you want to align.
Distribute Spacing
Distribute layers using exact distances between each one — just type the spacing amount, in pixels, into the box before distributing.
Ignore Parents
Parenting a layer to a null object or any other layer, then adjusting its transform settings is one of the main causes of alignment errors — avoid them by choosing to ignore a layer’s parent whilst aligning or distributing.
Clever, right?
Detect Paragraph Text
Choose whether to align and distribute text layers as point text, or paragraph (area) text — choosing paragraph text takes into account a layer's full bounding box.
Center or Average?
When using the built in align tool to centrally align your selected layers to each other, After Effects calculates the average center point instead of the exact center point of your layers.
So, we’ve gone ahead and given you the choice between the two.
Responsive Panel
For those who don't like to clutter up their workspace, the panel is responsive — just stretch it out and it'll magically switch.

    Twirling down endless groups in your shape layers to find and set a stroke’s dashes, taper or wave settings takes forever. StrokeStyler instantly fetches these settings for you, allowing you to easily edit them directly in the panel.

    StrokeStyler also brings the much-loved 'Align Dashes to Corners' functionality to After Effects.
