Layer displayer is a script that shows layers on request. It analyzes your layers and hides everything unnecessary using the “shy” layer property. It is also worth paying attention to the fact that the gray layers are hidden automatically, which must be taken into account in the process.
k - select all the keyframes under the current time indicator and hide all the untouched (doesn't work with stretched layer)
An empty field will reveal all the layers

ks - select all the keyframes within the work area and hide all the untouched layers
t - reveal the layers that are under the time indicator
l# - reveal the layers with the label of the specific color. The first two letters are enough (e.g. l#re). The layers with the label None will be ignored.
s - reveal the selected layers only
In addition to the commands listed above, there are the following:
  • msk - hide masks
  • n - hide nulls
  • wa - reveal the layers that are within the work area
  • vn - reveal the layers with the grey label only
  • lo - hides locked layers
  • en - hides enabled layers
  • le - hides locked and enabled layers
The script was run on versions from 2014 to 2018. Since the ability to conveniently assign a script to a hot key appeared in the 2018 version of the after effect, I recommend installing it on versions from 2018 and above.
If you have ideas what can be added to the script, write in the comments.
