After Effects Shortcut Icons
  • Are you guys familiar with Touch Portal?  It's a phone/tablet-based version of Streamdeck.  The icons will work flawlessly with it.  
  • Hey Victor thanks for the heads up. I'll look into it!
  • Does the stream deck switch icon set based on what program is active? Say you have different buttons for different adobe programs.

    The way Stream Deck works is, as long as you specify an application in the profile, it will load the profile based on what application you switch to.image
  • Can you install your KBAR toolbars without deleted the current ones I already have?

    In my tests it does seem to overwrite your existing bars. You can backup them up of course before installing but it shouldn't do that. I would contact the KBar developer about that.
  • Hey there! I was wondering, are there Touch Portal or Stream Deck page configs for Windows hotkeys or do you only have it for OSX?

    At this time only OSX extra, though of course the icons themseleves can be used cross platform.
  • Definitely going to pick this up! Would it be possible to get color icons on a black background? (like reversing the colors of the black icons on the color bg). 

    edit: Actually reading more into it, it looks like the Kbar icons are like this?

    An update on this comment...The AE pack now contains profiles for both Mac and Windows!

    Hi Kit - you can quickly do this in Photoshop. Just make an action to open, lock transparent pixel then fill layer with foreground color, reverse selection and then fill with background color then close. Run it as a batch, choose the folder of icons and just run. It run off like 20 icons in 5 secs.
  • Are the icons on the set provided only in a bitmap format or are there vector versions as well?

  • They are bitmap only.
  • This looks great & I'm interested in purchasing a stream deck in order to use this with it. But I was just wondering if you know if it's possible to launch a script from the script ui panel (such as duik) using the Stream Deck?
  • Not currently no. It's possible to integrate it with Quick Menu to do this though. Touch Portal should have that ability in the next few weeks. I'll be testing it.

    I see. I've just read a comment on this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0i0XJkuyZs) which says you've found a workaround for launching effects etc. Is that workaround only for Touch Portal or Stream Deck too?

    Also, do you have any information on how to integrate with Quick Menu in order to launch scripts?
  • Yes. I just launched https://aescripts.com/aefx-shortcut-icons-and-profiles/ and works for both Touch Portal and Stream Deck. Profiles are all built with buttons for every single effect.

    If you've got Quick Menu you just program a button in Stream Deck to key press the shortcut command for Quick Menu (let's say command / space) then tell the button to enter text in the text field (such as "Array"). Pressing this button results in the Array script launching.

  • Hi, I've installed Touch Portal on my smartphone. It is connected to my PC, but when I click on the buttons in the different icons, it doesn't work anything at all... is there something I need to do?
  • Hi Danielle - these profiles only work with tablets running Touch Portal Pro. They are not made for the smartphone versions.
