Quick Start

Try it for Free !

The 7 days trial version is fully functional, but the number of supported layers is limited to 3 and the Add to Existing Connection option is disabled.

Note on Compatibility

Connect Layers PRO uses the path expressions introduced in AE CC 2018. Therefore, the plug-in requires AE CC 2018 or later.
AE CC 2019 has introduced a new expression engine called "Javascript", which is generally faster than the old "Legacy ExtendScript". Since the plug-in makes intensive usage of expressions, we recommend you to use AE CC 2019 (or later). In the File->Project Settings dialog, click the Expressions tab, and change the Expressions Engine option to "Javascript". Please note that projects saved in previous versions of After Effects default to Legacy ExtendScript.

Upgrade Notice

If you previously purchased the old "Name Your Own Price" version of Connect Layers you can apply 20% of what you paid as a discount towards this version. For example, if you paid $20 then you will get a $4 discount. Simply login to the same account and the discount will be automatically applied.
