It was wonder to see you as customers of this scripts. Unfortunately I have no time to maintain them. That’s why any help or development will be frozen for infinite term

Built specially for professionals.

What is the Layer Manager?

Layer Manager is the missing tool for Adobe After Effects.
Built on top of CEP (Common Extensibility Platform) provided by Adobe, Layer Manager provides broad range of tools which boost your productivity while you working with layers.

Layer Manager was developed by team of motion designers who have experience in UX and Reactive programming. That’s why extension has intuitive interface and highly tested performance.

Purchase and enjoy your new workflow right now!


Where you can use it?

Huge compositions.

Ideal for huge compositions. No need to jump back and force to find required layers anymore.

Character rigging.

Separate your character by parts and work on them independently from each other.


Apply action to selected groups

Simply drag and drop to link layers

Drag and drop to reorder groups

Auto updates of UI

Take a look on linked layers

Invert any action, like photoshop does

And lots more:

Any number of layers.

The script works well even with compositions, which have more than 1,000 layers.

Stand-alone projects.

The project doesn’t require an availability of Layer Manager for working. Therefore you can transfer projects to third parties or to sell.

Pay only once.

You need to buy the Layer Manager only once. Next updates will be for free.

System Requirements.

Layer Manager is working on any version of After Effects CC2014 and higher.
