• OMG i want OCD !!!!⁄⁄⁄¡¡¡¡
  • Will i be able to have the option of placing a prefix on the layer when using this script?
    I tend to prefix all my nulls or adjustments layers based on what they do.
    For Example:

    Nulls:
    N_Pos_01

    Effects:
    E_HueLevels

    Expression Control Layers:
    Exp_Opacity

    This helps me quickly visual see and do a search on all my layers.

    Hi Gerald

    Currently you can't prefix based on layer type, but you can prefix effects with E_

    I like your suggestion for naming based on expressions, thanks!

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Hi Denis

    Just confirming you have the view set to "Layer Name" rather than "Source Name", otherwise the names won't show.

    Hi Shing

    Just confirming you had the effect selected and shift-clicked the settings icon. Then it should appear in the box for you to set your own custom alias.

    Hi Douglas

    Sorry I'm not understanding exactly. Are your custom effects names not saving after restarting after effects?

  • Awesome tool, I just wanted to confirm before buying/trying...

    Can you batch rename Groups under Contents of a Shape Layer? (e.g. when having a Shape Layer selected + Contents tab open + hundreds of Groups 1, 2, 3... selected).

    Hi Isaiah

    Currently we don't have that functionality unfortunately. Are you wanting to rename groups based off the layer name?

    Hi Isaiah

    Not necessarily – just want to rename several groups (numbered Group 1, 2, 3, 4... 1,000... by default) as it was imported from Illustrator. My interest is to easily categorize the design elements with new labels. For example, I have one Illustrator file that is one layer in AE (scuba diver under water). It has hundreds of outlines labeled as Groups under Contents that make up all design elements... ideally I'd rename several of them like fish 1, fish 2, fish 3... then rock 1, rock 2, rock 3...

    My only possibly solution is using the Explode Shape Layers 3 (ESL3) plugin to "explode" each of the groups as their own individual layers where OCD Renamer could then recognize them to batch rename.
  • Hey James,

    Is there any way to adjust all the names so that they're all in lowercase?

    Also, just a heads up. I'm not sure if this is still the case, but there's a slight spelling mistake in the config window (at least in the video). It should be "separator" as opposed to "seperator".

  • The version you guys sent over directly that fixed OCD renamer in CS6 works fine. Version 1.1.4

    Would be cool to update it here for other users to get this version if they need it :)

    Hi Malik

    Currently not, but we will consider that for the next update. Thanks for catching the spelling error!

    Hi Dennis. Could you please submit a support ticket and let us know what happens when you run the script? Does it show?
  • Hi!
    Fantastic tool! One question though: where are my customizations stored? I'd like to transfer them to another computer. Is there a way to edit customizations 'offline', as in: edit config file in a text-editor? I'd like to add prefixes like "FX_" and "CC_" to the effects names, it's quite a pain doing so in the tiny box in the preferences pane after adding all (!) installed effects.

    cheers,
    Moritz.

    Hi Mortiz

    OCD Renamer's preferences are stored inside AE's preferences text file, so if you copy that it should also copy the OCD Renamer preferences.

    On my windows machine it's here (specific to version 16.1):
    C:\Users\James\AppData\Roaming\Adobe After Effects 16.1\Adobe After Effects 16.1 Prefs.txt

    Let me know if you have any trouble.
  • Hi James.

    Thanks for the quick answer. I had already found the basic settings in the preferences file, just couldn't find any of the custom name settings there, but they're probably in some encoded section in the same file.

    cheers,
    Moritz.

    Hi Trevor

    My apologies. Matt, our dev who wrote OCD Renamer has told me he has replied. He will be travelling until Sunday the 17th November but he will do his best to keep in contact and find a resolution to the issue.

    Looks like this is Deep glow in the screen shot? not OCD Renamer related. That X usually shows if you haven't bought a tool and it's in trial mode.
  • how do i solve this?
    Yes as Chris mentioned this is the unlicensed watermark. If you're having further issues please open a support ticket.
  • Some people have real life struggles who have actual OCD. It is a condition and I think the name of this script is genuinely pretty offensive!

    You wouldn't name a script Downs Syndrome Deformer would you?

    Steve, as a user/fan of Plugin Everything products – I totally see your point of view on this daringly clever name. As creatives, maybe we can look outside the box of this synonymous acronym and consider it as Object Composition Detail renamer. 
  • Hi there,
