TurboLayers

Videos

This little script creates new layers directly above the selected layer in the composition.

After Effects by default makes a new layer on top of the stack of layers so if you have a comp with many many layers and you are working on the bottom side it is very frustrating that you have to go to the top each time you make a simple null layer and manually drag it to the bottom

  • it makes new Adjustment, Camera, Light, Null, Shape, Solid and Text layers
  • it also automatically trims the new layer to the duration and in and out point of the selected layer in the composition
  • when no layers are selected or a composition is empty it just makes a new layer
  • very simple to use, no settings
  • very slim, it takes minimum space
  • it adapts to both horizontal and vertical arrangement
  • scripts are separated so users who already own ft-Toolbar or similar launchers can pick and add single scripts to their preferred launcher so they don't use unnecessary space and windows
