GM Fold Layers

Recommended Posts

Question: if you were using this plugin on a machine and then moved the project to another machine without the plugin, would anything significant happen or would it just have a bunch of nulls dividing the layers up?

 

Nothing would happen.

We have all dreamt of this for years...Every release of CS we thought that Adobe would cut back on the gimmicks and improve usability and workflow, and every year they released these silly 'prosumer' tools that didn't help us work as fast as our demanding clients wanted us to. Folding layers for AE is one example of the kind of thing Adobe has to concentrate on in order to stay ahead of the game and relevant, imo.

It works. It rules.

 

Only drawback - it hijacks your shy settings, which is how it does what it does. So if you have projects where you use a lot of shy options to view the comps, these will be overwritten.

 

Small sacrifice though for something which can make projects so clean so quickly.

Whoa, cool. Downloading now.

 

I only wonder if there are issues with layer order while certain things are shy, like when you normally shy things. But I'm definitely going to try it out.

Great, so glad this is still alive, it's a massively useful feature. Not had any issues in 2 years using the old version, except occasionally losing an undo history. The original used to auto-resize the control layer, guess that was where the problems crept in.

Hey yall, I was using this for a bit recently on Mac (Mavericks/Yosemite) and was noticing a very annoying 'lag' in the timeline while selecting keys and layers. Thought it was more on the AE side but just did some troubleshooting and this plugin is causing it, even without any of the divider layers active.

 

Wouldn't suggest using it under mac at this point, maybe Mountain Lion is different...
