Aescripts FX StrokeSetter

As a motion designer, chances are that you always end up twirling down your Shape Layers’ content groups in order to find and tweak all the Stroke properties like Color, Width, Opacity, Dashes, Taper, Wave…

Indeed, After Effects doesn’t even offer any “Stroke panel” like Illustrator, and – especially for projects with a lot of stylized outlined vector artwork – twirling down those Shape layers contents groups again and again can become very time-consuming.

Features of Aescripts FX StrokeSetter

  • Stroke Caps
    Use the 3 first buttons to set the Stroke(s) Cap to Butt (1), Round (2) or Projecting (3), on selected Shape Layers.
  • Stroke Corners
    Use the 4th to 6th buttons to set the Stroke(s) Corner to Miter Join (4), Round Join (5) or Bevel Join (6), on selected Shape Layers.
  • Stroke Align
    Use the 7th to 8th icons in order to align Stroke(s) on Center (7), Inside (8) or Outside (9), on selected Shape Layers.
    This options are better suited for CLOSED shaped (like in Adobe Illustrator) ; you’ll generally not want to apply these ones on open paths!
    Please also note that an Offset Shape Layer Animator called ‘FX StrokeOffset’ will be added at the same hierarchy level for each Stroke.
  • Stroke Taper
    Use one of these 2 buttons to set the value of the Stroke’s ‘Taper Start’ (10) or the ‘Taper End’ (11) to 100%, on selected Shape Layers.
  • ALT + click on these buttons will create some local controls. This way, you’ll force all the Stroke Taper’s options (‘Start Length’, ‘End Lenght’, ‘Start Width’, ‘End Width’, ‘Start Ease’ and ‘End Ease’) to be linked to some same named Expressions Controls that will be added to each Shape Layer’s effects stack. This is perfect if you want to maintain some consistency in all the shapes contained in a same shape layer, that should share the exact same Taper Effect.
  • ALT + SHIFT + click on these buttons will create global controls. Just like explained previously, each Taper property will be driven by some Expression Controls created locally… BUT each of these Expression Controls effects will also be linked through expression to a master Null called ‘FX_StrokeSetter CTRL’, where you’ll find the exact same Controls effects that will drive all the selected Shape Layers globally (conversely to the ALT only shortcut, where controls where just local, independant from each other layer). This is the perfect choice if you want to keep consistency in all the composition or if you plan to expose the effects as Master Properties in the Essential Graphic Panel for templates creation. If a ‘FX_StrokeSetter CTRL’ Null layer already exists in the active composition, the Controls Effects will be added to it’s effects stack, among other existing controls.
  • Stroke Wave
    Use this button (12) to set the value of the Stroke’s ‘Wave Amount’ to a default value of 75%, on selected Shape Layers.
  • ALT + click on this button will create some local controls. This way, you’ll force all the Stroke Wave’s options (‘Wave Amount’, ‘Wave Lenght’ and ‘Wave Phase’) to be linked to some same named Expressions Controls that will be added to each Shape Layer’s effects stack. This is perfect if you want to maintain some consistency in all the shapes contained in a same shape layer, that should share the exact same Wave Effect.
  • ALT + SHIFT + click on this button will create global controls. Just like explained previously, each Wave property will be driven by some Expression Controls created locally… BUT each of these Expression Controls effects will be also linked through expression to a master Null called ‘FX_StrokeSetter CTRL’, where you’ll find the exact same Controls effects that will drive all the selected Shape Layers globally (conversely to the ALT only shortcut, where controls where just local, independant from each other layer). This is the perfect choice if you want to keep consistency in all the composition or if you plan to expose the effects as Master Properties in the Essential Graphic Panel for templates creation. If a ‘FX_StrokeSetter CTRL’ Null layer already exists in the active composition, the Controls Effects will be added to it’s effects stack, among other existing controls.
  • Stroke Dashes
    Use this button (13) to add Dashes and Gaps to the Stroke’s ‘Dashes’ group, on selected Shape Layers. A modal window will prompt you to add some dashes and gaps by pair (‘Dash 1’, ‘Gap 1’, ‘Dash 2’, ‘Gap 2’…), up to a maximum of 3 Dash/Gap pair (After Effects can’t add more natively), thanks to the + and – buttons (then validate with the ‘Set Dashes on Selected Shape Layers’).
  • ALT + click on this button will create some local controls. This way, you’ll force all the Stroke Dashes’s options you had chosen in the modal window (‘Dash 1’, ‘Gap 1’, ‘Dash 2’, … + another one called ‘Dashes Offset’) to be linked to some same named Expressions Controls that will be added to each Shape Layer’s effects stack. This is perfect if you want to maintain some consistency in all the shapes contained in a same shape layer, that should share the exact same Dashes setup.
  • ALT + SHIFT + click on this button will create global controls. Just like explained previously, each Dashes property will be driven by some Expression Controls created locally… BUT each of these Expression Controls effects will be also linked through expression to a master Null called ‘FX_StrokeSetter CTRL’, where you’ll find the exact same Controls effects that will drive all the selected Shape Layers globally (conversely to the ALT only shortcut, where controls where just local, independant from each other layer). This is the perfect choice if you want to keep consistency in all the composition or if you plan to expose the effects as Master Properties in the Essential Graphic Panel for templates creation. If a ‘FX_StrokeSetter CTRL’ Null layer already exists in the active composition, the Controls Effects will be added to it’s effects stack, among other existing controls.
  • Stroke Reset or Width/Color/Opacity
    This button (14) can be used for 2 different purpose : either to reset the Stroke’s Dashes, Wave and Taper effects, or to apply local or global controls for Strokes’ Width, Color and Opacity, on selected Shape Layers.
