Product review on Lester Banks:

"Obsessive Layers for After Effects is the Drawing Room’s tool for managing the length of the layers in your project. It’s a handy organization tool to trim many layers efficiently with a variety of methods. A new update to Obsessive Layers adds even more ways to trim layers.

The latest version adds the ability to trim to a designated selection. You can also trim layers to visibility, which looks at the “zero” percent keyframes of a layer and automatically cuts that selection accordingly.

Another great addition is the ability to use Obsessive Layers with tool-bar launchers such as FT-Toolbar or Kbar. The Ae tool now comes with SVG icons that you can use in your toolbar."
