Is there anyway to make it to only change the expressions for the selected layers? If so, I’m sold! Thanks.
Hello. Done) I’am add a new button, so now you can change expressions for only selected layers.
Nice! Going to purchase!
Thank you for the update to apply changes to only selected layers. Unfortunately, the last update to After Effects 2015 broke the functionality to apply changes to only selected layers. Is there an update to fix the change? Thanks!
Hello, thank you for feetback. I’ll try to fix it in a few days and make an update.
Great Update! This script just got a whole lot more powerful. Great work on this script. Thank you.
I just bought and it doesn’t work with AE CC 2015.2
Nevermind) I’m glad you like the script.
You have spared me a heart attack m8, Thanks
Glad to hear it
AE CC ver. 13.7 – - Script is not working. How do I get help?
Hello. I need more information about this bug. What string do you input into From and To boxes? Please send me email on email@example.com and describe the problem.
Hello, have you solved the problem ?
The script is not working in the AE CC ver. 14.0
I’m trying ton change word in expression (“Slider” to “Curseur”) but the script is returning : The string Slider was not found in any of the selected layers. No changes were made
Exemple of expression : thisComp.layer(“Color”).effect(“Bevel”)(“Slider”)
Please help !
1. Download the latest version of the scrypt.
2. Check that name of scrypt you use – “Find_and_Reaplace”. There is no such error message in my scrypt. (The only message the scrypt may show is “No text was entered in the Find Text box”)
3. I tested the script on AE CC v14 and it works.
If you still have the problem, please send me email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello, I bought ‘Find And Replace Script’. It’s cool and very useful script. This works fine with CS6 but not works with CS5.5 Could you fix this? Thank you!
Hello! The script works well for CS5.5, but some effects in cs5.5 has bug which does not allow look for expression. For example, Hue/Saturation effect.
Thank you for quick response to my question. Great item and fine customer support!!! It helped me to save many hours.
Great work, nice colors!
Is there any chance you could make this work with Puppet Pins? Renaming them is a pain in the neck because you can’t select the next one with the keyboard.
Hello! I found that someone already made such scrypt: https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/2/1052590
OK Thanks – I’d like the find-and-replace functionality too, but this is handy.
Love this tool! Often saves my time!
With 2017 it did NOT work using “Run Script…” but it DID work when I put it in ScriptUI panels folder
Thank you for feedback, I’ll check it.
i have a question.
how can i replace expressions with 2 or more strings?
and if i can’t, can you update this awesome script?
Hello. After half a year I finally added this functionality.
Hey does you script works with ae CC12 ? and can it replace all layers and effects to “don’t edit” or any other text i want to use for it? because i want a script to rename all effects and layer names and compositions to “don’t edit” for a template i work on and i don’t want to do it all by hand for over 600 + layers and effects if it’s possible or if it’s easy for you to implement it i’ll be looking forward to purchase it instantly i need that feature for many of my upcoming projects.
Please let me know.
Wow this is a life-saver. Everyone should have this script! Great work, 5 stars!
Hello! I just bought this script, and unfortunately it doesn’t work with big pieces of expressions. Say i would like to change 10 lines of expressions in 200 layers?
Hey. I experimented with expressions written in several lines, but for an unknown reason, for such lines, the standard search function does not work.
Therefore, this script only works for one line. To change 10 lines, you need to run the script 10 times – one time for each line.
And what if previous code was 5 lines and code you want to replace with is 10?
Well, I can offer to reduce the number of lines. For example strings
t = 0;
k = index;
k = k++;
can be replaced by one line without mistake:
t = 0; k = index; k = k++;
Look, the reason why i bought this script was that i have many layers, where are some lines of code, right? Let’s say i have 200 layers. I can’t just delete 199 layers, correct expression and duplicate them again, because each of them has unique position. So, you offer to me reduce amount of lines? In each layer? If i’ll do it why i need this script?
No, I offer you to reduce lines in one expression:
You want to replace 200 expressions A with one expression B. A have 5 line and B have 10 line. I offer you to reduce B one time
Ok, but your field “From” accept only one line of “A” code any way. So it’s still not possible to use it.
Yes, I wrote in the very beginning: “To change 10 lines, you need to run the script 10 times – one time for each line.”
So to change 5 lines you need to run the script 5 times – one time for each line
If this script works with only one line of code, then it works just like a script called Duik, for example, which is absolutely free.
So, if I understand you correctly, you wont to improve this script, right?
Yes, Duik now has similar functional (but I’ve made the script earlier) You understand me incorrectly, I want and will improve the script if it possible But it will take a long time. So I’m trying to solve your problem as quickly as possible with the available functionality. So if you have time – write on my email email@example.com , I speak Russian
