Designed to create any type of graphical measuring ruler, fast and easy. No more aligning and fiddling around with dozens of layers. easyRulers creates all the necessary shape and text layers, perfectly aligns them and adds convenient effect controls for easy customization.
Upgrade notice: v1.74 is free for all previous users!
Features introduced in version 1.6
|Examples of baselines.|
easyRulers can be run as a dockable panel (will be visible and run from the "Window" menu in After Effects) or in "window" mode" (visible and run from the File -> Scripts menu).
The mode depends on which folder you install the script in.
Great care has been taken to make sure that every property controlled by easyRuler's expressions is unlocked and editable.
The text layers that the script creates, are completely independent. This means you can edit, move, scale, rotate, etc. each layer individually without breaking its relation to the ruler. You can even delete any text layer you want without affecting the functionality of the script.
The script is compatible and has been successfully tested on:
on both Windows and macOS (+Catalina) platforms.
If you encounter any bugs please open a support ticket describing the problem as detailed as possible including screenshots. Please be patient, I am just a motion designer like you!
easyRulers gives you full control over the creation of text numbering. You can adjust the starting point, the stepping, the size, alignment and color of the text layers.
You can also easily add prefixes or suffixes (or both) to each text layer.
The "Create Ruler" button, shows (and is updated every time you change a setting) the range of numbers that is going to be created.
