Shape Layer - Offset Plugin?
on Jan 18, 2017 at 11:08:16 am

Good morning everyone,

I am working on a bar chart animation while using shape layers. In this graphic, there's bars and lines to showcase the information. In the background, I have drawn out some horizontal lines using shape layers with the repeater settings to produce the the lines, etc.

At the moment, I am starting to animate the horizontal line using the trim line settings with the shape layer. What I am looking for is to offset the new line but 5 - 10 frames from each other to give a wave effect of the lines being drawn on.

I am aware there's a plugin in After Effects, where it can offset the trim line settings by a few frames as I seen a freelancer using this technique before but I only seen it once and this was a couple of years ago!

Could someone point out the name of plugin? It's driving me crazy of searching for it on the internet, hence asking on here now.

Thank you and all the best,

Auto sequence layers. It's a part of AE.

Here's my go-to tool for staggering layers/keyframes:
