• Hey, great script.

    At the moment all i can use is two layers. 
    I would love to have the option to choose one matte layer and be able to fit many layers into that matte.
    there's a script in here called "matte kit" that does just that, so if ill be able to work with as many layers as i want without the 2 layer limitation your product will beat any other script out there.

    thanks
  • This is a great tool and addition to AE!

    I tried useing "Merge layers as image" and as an idea it's an great tool. The only problem is that it tries to save the image to appdata instead of project folder. It would be better if the images were saved to for an example "MTool_images" folder within the AEP file or something like that. Obviously the best option would be if the user could choose where to save etc. But I think having a specific folder with AEP files location would be good too.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Thanks for your comment.
    In this case, for infinite layers you can use the "Compound Matte" extension.
    However, in the next updates we will probably expand the features of the MatteTool.
    Good luck

    We will probably put a button for settings that can be used to change the default folder path and the other settings.
    Thanks for your good idea.

    Great! Remember to have an option where it automatically saves the file(s) next to the project. 
  • Is not that great, actually I guess I should not had buy it, specially the background remover is bugged.

    If there is any bugs on our part, it will be solved in the next update.
    Thanks
  • I'm also seeing the same issue with the background remover bug. After Effects prompts with this window:

    After Effects error: File couldn't be opened for writing: "Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/mattetool/icons/tmp/MT160989100.png". (3 :: 0)

    Please let me know if this will be resolved. I'd gladly purchase it :)

    Hi again,
    In the new version, all images will save in the "MatteTool" folder  next to the project.

  • It keeps disappearing from AE when I restart. Like. I have to reinstall it almost daily.

  • Will there be a way to hover over the icons and a text to appear saying what that button does? It would make using this tool a lot easier if it had that!
  • Requesting a responsive UI layout. The current layout is an awkward fit

    Yes, it will be considered.
  • Is it possible to link tools into the K-Bar? I do not want next UI panel, it eats lot of space and I want to keep my workspace clean and simple..
    literally, it's own UI pannel is the dealbreaker for me..
  • Great set of tools, thank you! Will you consider changing the look/color of the icons in future releases, to match look/style of for example 'Keyfast' or Motion for example and the look of Ae overall? Thanks for your hard work. 
  • What an excellent update to version 2.1. Works like a charm and the new UI is beautifull. I'm very gratefull! Thanks a bunch!!
