ROLE: Design/Animation DEVELOPER: Kyle Martinez
Back in 2018, I reached out to the extremely talented Kyle Martinez to help me develop an After Effects script to make parenting easier with in after effects easier. This was such a fun process to create a tool for the program that I use everday!
Parenting layers in After Effects can be difficult, time-consuming, and frustrating but Layer Sitter helps make parenting easier. Instead of dragging your pickwhip or endlessly scrolling you can quickly parent selected layers using a filterable list. Quickly add a new null with customizable position in both the composition and the timeline. Store commonly used layers as Quick Parents for easy parenting. Layer Sitter is perfect for character animators, motion designers, and anyone else who needs help managing compositions with many layers.
