    doesn’t work on cs6

  • Daniel Tegeland

    Any chance you make this work on cs6?

  • Daniel Tegeland

    Sorry my bad. It works.

  • Phoenician

    Where do you keep the script ?

    Scripts folder and Scripts UI Panel, I tried both & still get:
    “Select at least one layer”, but I don’t get the panel with the “Create” button. I’m working in AE CS6 & AE CC

    • It works on both CC & CS6. Just follow what the script say! It say “Select at least one layer”, so select at least one layer, run the script, bingo.
      Yeah we’ve change the way it works sorry…

        I am having the same issues as Phoenician, I also don’t have the “create button” when the script runs. I have tried the Script UI Panel and Script Folder. Tested on both CS6 And CC. No luck. layers are selected when the script runs. I think there is an issue/bug.

        • The script has been updated, could you give it a try?

          • I made some shape layers in AE and then applied newton which worked fine but I couldn’t apply this script to the shape layers so I created a solid as a new layer and the script applied to that fine, so no using shape layers I guess 😛 AE CC and win7

          • duiceburger

            Yes that worked! Tested with Adobe CC! Thanks for the fast fix and update. Really great scripts here on MB! I appreciate your generosity to the AE community.

  • Phoenician

    The create panel does not show !
    I willing to buy this script if it works with AE CC or at least AE Cs6
    & You name your price.

  • Phoenician
