    I'm using marker to sequence very well.
    On the newly created layer, it moves well.
    but, the layers that have been copied elsewhere have strange behavior.
    Please help me.

    Hi Lloyd. Is there any planned Apple Silicon support for Freeform Pro? I need to make a decision soon and I haven't seen any replies to my ticket or the forums on here.

    Hello Lloyd,
    I'm using immigration and Its great. Would it be possible to add .ARW (sony raw) image sequences to the file types you can import. After effects recognizes it but its not an option on the drop down and it doesn't show up when selecting all.

    Hello Lloyd, I'm using expression universalizer 4.0.4. I have purchased it from aescripts.
    But Adobe recommends 4.0.2. Can you share a link to download that version?

      Hey again.
      You can keep the 29.99 if you can make v1.7 of Zorro working the way I imagined it to work :)
      (also, can you add a "enable/disable" (eye icon) button?)

    Hi Lloyd,

    (as many other people have pointed out, it doesn't seem possible to add comments without logging in - even though I'm already logged in, so here goes):

    Your Render Frame at Markers AE script - do you have any plans to update it since variable length markers were introduced a couple of versions back? It'd be FANTASTIC to be able to set, for example, a 100 frame-long marker, then a couple of "normal" 1-frame markers, then a 200-frame-long marker, then run the script to queue a 100 frame QuickTime, two TIFFs and a 200 frame QuickTime.

    I'd be interested to hear your thoughts!

    ~ Paul

    Please simplify this plugin.  Would like to see a tutorial on how to zoom in on actual streets to make it look like "google earth" or something similar.  I'm a realtor and would love to buy this plugin and use it if I thought it would be helpful.  At this point, I don't know.

    I have been using your reposition anchor since AE 2016 and LOVE IT! -(and wrote about it on my blog as one of my favorite scripts!) Was wondering if the version you have up works with 2018? Or if you are planning an upgrade so I can purchase. The version I have --- not sure which I have -- doesn't seem to work with 2018.

    So question is, should I buy the current one you have listed or wait till you have a 2018 Version? THANKS!

    Hello. I cannot seem to post a comment as it tells me I need to log in, even though I am logged in. Anyway, I just installed the demo version of your 'Global Renamer' script on CC2018. It doesn't appear to be renaming anything. I set up a test comp with just a couple assets and when I used the script panel to rename them it did not do so. I tried a few of the object search types, text, layers, project panel items, and it didn't work with any of them. I notice CC2018 is not on the compatibility list. Is this the reason or should the script be working properly?

    Hi Lloyd,
    I'm having a problem with the customer service ticket, whenever I reply to your emails, it comes back with a notification that someone has posted an answer to my question with my email to you. 

    I need a new license key for the product I paid for, as the current one does not work. It's Puppet Tools 3. I downloaded the manager and it doesn't work for what I need. 

    Please look into this issue asap.

    I just purchased AE Global Renamer. Your demo videos show the dialog box already open, but I need help to get to that stage (experience AE user, but this is my first time adding a plugin).

    I've downloaded and unzipped the file, and it's in my Applications folder (El Capitan), and I'm using CC 2015.

    *What do I do next?* I can't seem to find information that covers this.

    (Note: I paid $1.00, but I will pay the remaining $24.00 once I've confirmed the product works.)

    I have been having issues with BG Renderer Pro ever since I upgraded to AE CC 2015 (13.5). Everytime I go to use BG Renderer Pro I get an error message that says, "It appears something might have gone wrong. Quit Terminal if it is running and please try again. Also check your directory path and project filename to make sure it doesn't contain any illegal characters such as: !"\<>/?:|&%" I have done everything I can to fix it on my end, but it continues to happen, even if directory path and project filename are correct. 

    Please help!
    Thank you!

      This is a known issue in cc2015 however it's just a harmless alert so simply ignore it.

    I don't can't seem to find any solution to my Ease and Wizz Problem posted last week with no response and other post i have seen on the forum with the same problem have no solutions?
    My Problem is the bounce and elastic do not show up at all and the out in the keys drop down is barley visiable.
    I have unzipped to Scripts UI Panel and the folder is there with elastic and bounce??
    PLEASE HELP!!!! I am on a tight deadline and really would help to have this working for me!
    Thanks very much for your time!

    Hi there, I just have a question, I have downloaded the plexus 2 as a trial version but my AE is crashing all the time, this is because is a demo mode ? if I buy it the problem will be fixed? if you can help me with that will be great..Thanks

    April 2015
    • Lloyd Alvarez
      Lloyd Alvarez
      No, the crash is probably related to something else not plexus. The paid version is the same as the trial version. If you need further help please open a support ticket http://aescripts.com/contact/

    Hello Lloyd,
    I'm new to using BG Renderer and need it for a very specific task.
    I need to render many image sequences locally and then copy them to a server.
    What would the command be to copy all the folders of image sequences?  Is that possible?
    March 2015
    • Lloyd Alvarez
      Lloyd Alvarez
      Depends on whether you are on mac or windows: you use cp on osx: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/cp.1.html and xcopy on windows: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/xcopy.mspx?mfr=true
    • Richard Sinti
      Richard Sinti
      Thanks, yes, from the tutorial video I saw that the copy command is cp (I'm on a mac) butI'm wondering what the next prompts are, so [outputFilePath] then I'm not sure how to tell it to copy the folder that contains all the image sequence folders so i get this error message:
      /Users/riccardo.sinti/Desktop/BG_Test/Comp_01/Comp_01_[#####].sgi: No such file or directory
      which I guess means that it is looking for a single frame called "Comp_01_[#####].sgi" which is what the render que calls the sequence before individual images are rendered into a folder.
      Does this make sense?
      Thanks for all the great help you have provided me over the years in one form or another.
