Paste Multiple Keyframes in Adobe After Effects

Here’s a simple script that equals huge timesavings –  paste multiple keyframes in Adobe After Effects.

One way to be more efficient in After Effects is to become a keyframe wiz.  Being adept at keyframing means a faster workflow and more dynamic projects.  However, despite the powerful keyframe features in After Effects, some functionality still falls a bit short.  The After Effects wizzes at have created a really handy script to address one such function, copying and pasting multiple keyframes.

The really awesome thing about this AE script is that you can copy and keyframe on multiple layers.

There’s a multitude of uses for this simple After Effects script to speed up your video editing or motion design work. Very handy for duplicating the motion of several elements onto several NEW elements (images, graphics, etc).  See the video below to see it in action.

Maybe Adobe will catch wind and include this functionality in future AE versions.  Until then, give this script a spin….you may catch yourself wondering what you ever did without it.

    Good script, but there is a GREAT one called Keyframe Presets.

    You can copy keyframes from multiple layers into different presets in which you can give names. So you get a list of presets that you can choose from. Very useful for character-animation!

    Also, you can export the presets to external files! Yes, it’s that GREAT!

    Then again, that the expensive flagship of motion graphic software from all mighty Adobe doesn’t already include a function like this is (among oh so many things) is amazingly ridiculous.. But what other options do we really have..? :(
