Quick Overview

Allows quick access to switch between 8, 16 and 32 bits per channel as well as turning the multiprocessing preference on and off. Has the option of showing or hiding the Purge button to suit your preference.

A dockable UI for quickly accessing preferences to speed up After Effects. Change project bit-depth, multiprocessing, and idle rendering as well as quickly purging the image caches.

Starting with After Effects CS4, there is a new multi-processing throttle system that manages how many CPU's are to be left free for other applications. Also adds access to a little known hidden preference that allows you to set the quality of the Toggle Pixel Aspect Correction button in the Comp View. (Please note that After Effects needs to be restarted after changing the PAR quality, this pref is only available in CS3)

Has the option of showing or hiding the Purge button to suit your preference.

    DuplicateLayers-n-UpdateExpressions

    Duplicates the selected layers and if any of the layers have expressions referencing any of the layers being duplicated it will update the expressions to point to the newly duplicated layers. Might make more sense if you watch the demo :-)

    Zorro-The Layer Tagger

    Zorro lets you group layers in after effects by adding tags to layers. Similar to the way you would tag photos in Flickr, you can tag layers in your comps and then select or isolate those layers in groups by using the tags.
