Aescripts Penpal

Penpal has made my workflow so much easier. Gives me the really smart basic shape layer functions I’ve been wanting for years inside of AE

Penpal is so jam-packed with essential path editing features, I have it permanently docked in my After Effects workspace

Features of Aescripts Penpal

    If your path is inside a group or layer that’s rotated, Ae’s snapping can act weird. With Penpal you can work on the path as it really is, and move the points in their original space.
  • It’s a bit like having your shapes stored in ‘right way up’ external files, except you can adjust and keyframe the path right there without having to leave your comp.
    Penpal’s UI is based on the one you already know from Ae – so it’s pretty intuitive. There is one thing it does differently: tangents can be selected in the same way that you select points – by either dragging a marquee over them, or shift-clicking them one-by-one.
  • This enables tangent control that’s more advanced than anything in Ae or Illustrator.
    Load paths from selected layers into Penpal by clicking the reload button at the top-left, or double-clicking anywhere in the canvas space below.
  • Select the elements you want to work with by either dragging a marquee, or shift-clicking on them one-by-one. You can select paths, points and tangents independently of one another. The icons of points and tangents will change from empty to filled as you select them.
  • Click on the three tabs at the top of the panel to see the buttons that work with that element – paths, points or tangents. As you change tab Penpal highlights those elements blue, so you know what you’re about to affect.
  • Precisely move points in their ‘true’ space
  • Align and distribute points
  • Rotate tangents by a set amount, like 45º or 90º
  • Snap points to pixels
  • Flip paths precisely
  • Simplify paths with too many points
  • Zero individual tangents
  • Reverse path direction (the actual order of the points, not just the timeline toggle)
  • Match the angle or length of tangents
  • Break a path in two, or join two into one
  • And more
