Ripple delete in AE to close a layered sequence?
on Dec 15, 2014 at 7:05:47 am

I have imported multiple images into AE (1000's) some of the images are not needed. if I delete one how can I close the gap. I am looking for something like Premiere's ripple delete.
See the attached image to get an idea of what I am talking about.

Ripple Delete is a feature commonly found in NLE's like Premiere, but not in AE. The reason: AE is not a video editing application.

I found a away to do it.
Select all layered elements and goto KeyframeAssistant/SequenceLayers.
This would allow me to close the gaps while keeping all the layers in sequence.

Oh, yeah... not nearly as elegant as a Ripple Delete, but effective.

Sadly, if your layers are not perfectly sequential to begin with, this method won't work.

Example: you have some layers with adjustment layers on top. Sequencing layers would shift those Adjustment layers out of position...
