HOW MANY YEARS?? HOW MANY YEARS HAVE I WANTED THIS? Since AE 3.0. Thank you plugin devs.


Jaimin Sharma

Wish this was inbuilt... This looks sick


Alan Crytex

I was thinking if AE could've rebuilt their UI for the Layer Styles, but you did it and this whole thing is aesthetically pleasing


Jayant Srivastava

That something should be included in AE but you guys nailed it.. finding my wallet


Jakub Jezovic

Working natively with layer styles is quite painful, so this is great. Had to buy it right away, thanks for making it Berend!
