KEY-board


Controlling keyframes is animator’s daily routine. 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.

 

The Installation method of KEYboard is a bit different from nomal scripts. Please check the following installation guide.

Notice:

1.If you have already set other scripts as keyboard shortcut. Before installing KEYboard, you need to rename the number of the script file name. If KEYboard is the third script in alphabetical order, nenaming KEYboard as 03-key-board.jsxbin.

2.Because of scripting limitation, KEYboard acts different in AE CS6.
