Easy Clones 2
Compatibility After Effects Please check exact version compatibility under the "COMPATIBILITY" tab below
A cloning system built for 2D artwork, including Bitmap Layers, Vector Layers, Shape Layers and Precomps.
Easy Clones creates a flexible clone system that allows you to quickly and easily apply line and grid position spacing, add randomness to position, scale, rotation and opacity properties, add random colours, loopable wiggles, maintain stroke widths and an inbuilt delay system to your animations. Although the tool is built for 2D artwork, 3D Layers are also supported.
How it works: Easy Clones creates a Clone Control Layer that controls basic properties (position, scale, rotation and opacity) that can be modified further using the controllers within the Easy Clones Effect. Artwork layers are transformed into Clones that reference the Control Layer whilst remaining completely controllable, allowing you to fine-tune and tailor your animations.
Please make sure the anchorpoints are centred on your artwork layers before creating a clone system.
The trial version is limited, you'll only be able to use Delay, X and Y position. If you purchase a license, you will need to recreate any existing systems in order to unlock the full functionality of the script.
