rd: Slicer

This script displays a palette with controls for slicing the selected layer into a grid. Slicing works best with non-rotated layers. If a parent null layer is created, it will be anchored at the layer’s current anchor point.

You can shrink each slice’s mask by increasing the Margin value (in pixels), and rounding its corners by increasing the Roundness value (percentage of half the shorter of the layer’s width or height).

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.
