Tidy Up for Adobe After Effects



Are you a messy motion graphics artist?




Sort the project panel into folders. Looks at the items in the project panel and tidies them up into new folders. Choose your own folder names. (remembered between sessions) Any old folders are dropped into ‘Old Folders’. It’s also a useful way of isolating missing footage or perhaps footage from stills and to reveal your missing items too. See how many items are in your folders by revealing the comment tab in the project panel.You can tidy only certain types if you wish, like if you want to put all vectors and missing footage into their own folders. Also included an 'Ignore selected option to exclude files and folders (with their contents) that are selected in the root of the project panel.

Benny did a lot of the illustration and character animation, I did the 3d and composition. For instance we used Benny's cat which my (3d) moped dodges.A nice working combination.
