"Super simple, this script should really be shipped with After Effects"

- Angela Roche, Design By Day.

"We use the staggering function all the time and there is rarely a project where I wouldn’t use this script."

- Hyperfine Media


Quickly shift or stagger selected layers in time.

Shift Selected Layers:

  • Shifts all selected layers in time by the same amount. You can shift by a fixed amount of time, or have the first in-point/last-out point of the selected layers jump to the current time marker.

Stagger Selected Layers:

  • Staggers selected layers in time, offsetting each layer by a fixed amount of frames or seconds. Layers can be staggered starting from the current time marker, or the offset can be added to each layer's current time. Layers are sequenced in the order that you select them, so be aware of this when you're shift-selecting groups of layers.
