• Wicked tool! Just upgraded and it's working great. Wish it could also UN-crop when needed. (ie: Autocropped and then added another element to Comp that extends beyond boundaries and need to uncrop).

    I'll have to look into doing something like that. For now, (if you're cropping a pre-comp) you can use Mask Crop and just make the mask larger than the size of the composition you are "cropping"
  • Hello when I click on "register" in preferences it doesn't do anything, then it says it's on trial mode..

    Any idea ? :)
  • Me too. I just bought this. PlLease fix. ASAP!
  • windows CC 2019.
  • I bought the 3.0 version and got the upgrade email, but the AE Scripts app and site says I have to pay $5 for a 0.01 update.
  • Thanks for the swift update. Good stuff!

    Sorry about that. Is this happening on version 3.0.1 or the original 3.0.0 release? The update should have fixed this issue.

    You should not have to pay for the upgrade. I'll have to look into that. 

    Please try downloading the trial version. There is no difference between the trial and paid version. Once you enter your serial, they are exactly the same.
  • Agree with Wade Ha, being able to "un-crop" or what ever it would be called would make this tool insanely good! :)


  • Hey there, glad you updated this! I bought it twice :D , I use it all the time!
    The one thing I immediately noticed was that you can't change the padding without going into the preferences each time. It would be great if you moved that setting and exposed it to the outside so we can adjust it faster. Padding is something that I need to change surprisingly often, at least in my type of work.

    All that said, I've used v2 forever, and just want to say THANKS!

    PS: Plus 1 to the Mask-Uncrop feature that would be amazing. I have used this tool in reverse by adding a solid and auto cropping to expand dimensions before I think

    Yes, I can definitely add an option to show the preferences on the dockable panel.

    Also, the mask-uncrop is already a feature. You can also set an extra-large padding and "crop" a comp that has already been cropped to expand it. I'm working on making this a one-click/automated feature
  • Thats amazing, thanks! Also, something I just noticed after hitting the autocrop button moments ago, a "center anchor point" checkbox would also be awesome. Often times when autocropping a bunch of things, that's another common thing I find myself needing to do post-crop.

    Thanks again!!! Amazing script :D

  • Yes, an option to "uncrop" would be great. Where the contents of the comp have extended beyond its boundaries and you want the comp to be resized to the max dimensions.

    There is a new option called `Expand` that was added in Auto Crop 3.1.0 which gives this functionality. You can see a quick clip of it working towards the bottom of the description page in the `Expand and Crop` section.

    Hi,

    Auto Crop crops compositions to fit their contents, not individual media layers. If you are getting that error, you are not selecting a comp or a pre-comp. If you need to crop a specific media layer, put it into its own comp and crop the composition.

    If you are selecting a comp or pre-comp and are still seeing that error, please open a support ticket so we can look into the issue.
  • I found an issue if the precomp has a layer with seprated dimensions (x,y) script will show an error msg.

  • When will this be compatible with CC 2020? You say it is on this site, but it does not list CC 2020 in my AE Scripts app manager. And I can't load it into CC 2020.
  • I've installed Auto_Crop.aex into a few of AE's plugins folder but I can't find it in AE. How does one access this file in AE?
