New version of Layer Selector Toolbar on sale now

Just released a new version of Layer Selector Toolbar. Save 25% this week only. 

Version 1.5 is a free upgrade, and lets you limit selections to layers active at the current time by ctrl/cmd-clicking. This is really useful for things like grabbing all the text currently on screen, or, inverted (ctrl/cmd+shift-click), for shying or turning off all the layers you’re not currently working on.

In less-visible updates, the script has also been rewritten from the ground up. 1.5 is made from faster, much more compact code. (Seriously, this thing is like a third as long as it used to be.) It should play a little bit nicer with giant comps.

Layer Selector Toolbar: Now available on aescripts

Big news, everybody! My new After Effects script, Layer Selector Toolbar, is now for sale on aescripts.com.

It’s a compact toolbar that comes in two flavors, vertical and horizontal. CS4+, Windows and OSX.

And it — surprise! — selects layers by property:

I’m hoping it turns out to be a useful little utility. I’ve found it especially handy for navigating giant comps with a ton of layers, and I’m loving not having to hunt for the camera layer when working in 3D.

Big thanks to Tomas Sinkunas and Zack Lovatt for beta testing.

In other news, I’m going to have some work on TV later this month. Stay tuned!
