Hey guys new here so I hope im doing everything correctly.

So my question is, is there anyway to record a series of commands that i can then press one button and it completes it for me, exactly like photoshop.

So i need to pretty much do this

Duplicate layer > Gaussian Blur > Stretch 300% > Move Layer Down > Saturation -40%

If i do this manually this takes a long time compared with the possiblity of a single button press.

Thank you very much guys

Nope! No such Photoshop trick in AE. But you CAN copy effects from one layer and paste them into another. You can also create effect presets, complete with keyframes. So all is not lost... it's just different.

I takes a bit of research and trial and error, but you can go a long way with automation (ahk, quickeys...)

I've used Hot Keyboard and similiar shareware in the past.
