rd: Key Markers

This script displays a palette with controls for identifying the location of keyframes on a layer by using layer markers.

Markers created by this script are identified by a Frame Target value of “redefinery” so that they can be updated accordingly.

Note: The generated layer markers do not update automatically as you modify keyframes, but you can re-run this script to update them accordingly.

If multiple keyframes exist at the same time, and you have selected to use a non-custom or non-keyframe time comment, the information for each keyframe will be separated by semicolons. However, marker comments are limited to 63 characters.

Note: If placing markers on the top or selected layer, and the layer contains existing markers that you created, they will not be affected unless they exist at the same times as keyframes being identified.

Note: This version of the script requires After Effects CS5 or later. It can be used as a dockable panel by placing the script in a ScriptUI Panels subfolder of the Scripts folder, and then choosing this script from the Window menu.
