Automate the creation of layers
LayerGenerators is a collection of 3 tools for After Effects to automate the creation of layers.
These tools are particularly useful when a large number of layers is required, and when these layers cannot be obtained by just duplicating an existing layer.
They have been designed during the development of our plug-in Pastiche, when we realized that it would be great to have a tool to quickly generate a bunch of elements to start playing. They can be used to create text layers, solids (possibly with masks and effects) and vector shapes.
This tool generates ASCII alphabet with the font style of the elected text layer. Each character is placed on individual layer. It also provides options to generate digits and punctuation marks, to center anchor point in layer content, and to use shape layers instead of text.
This tool allows you to easily create a large number of colored solids, or to colorize existing layers (solid, text, or shape layers).
The generated solids can possibly inherit properties from an initial solid (e.g., masks or effects).
The Colorize option allows you to color the created solids or existing layers. You can select one the 60 color presets, or create your own palette.
For text and shape layers, you can choose to affect the Fill color, the Stroke color, or both.
This tool generates icons as shape layers. You can choose among 3000 vector icons from 6 popular icon sets. Icons can be either created by group (for instance “all brand icons”), or individually.
Since icons are created with shape layer, they can be resized without loosing quality. However, for convenience you can specify the initial icon size. All icons are filled in white.
