KEYboard provides a series of function for keyframes in After Effects. Those functions are small but can be used frequently, such as setting keyframe Ease, cloning keys, mirroring keys, shifting keys or randomizing keys. The most important is you can do those through keyboard shortcuts.

With KEYboard, animators can do things more quickly and would not be interrupted by those repetitive tasks.

For more information about all features, please see the guide /中文使用說明


new feature: KEYboard window will appear in the last closed position





The installation method of KEYboard is a bit different from the general script.

For CC2018 users:

please update to the newest version of KEYboard and set shortcut with Visual Keyboard Shortcut Editor. Enter"KEY-board" in search-bar and set shortcut which you want.


 If KEYboard doesn't works...

There is a bug on Mac for using shortcut. If you are using AE cc2017 and KEYboard can't work after setting shortcut, please try to modify shortcut manually. Open the shortcuts file and set the shortcut in ExecuteScriptMenuItem02 instead of ExecuteScriptMenuItem01.
