better automation

Hello everyone,

In my work I often find myself doing the same operations. For example: animating the opacity from 0 to 100 then trimming the layer to begin in the first keyframe, etc.

I would like to know if there's a tool that could do something like the Actions window, in Photoshop, or another one that would help me speed this repeated tasks.

Thank you!

You can create an Animation Preset for frequently-used changes.

I don't know if an animation preset would also trim a layer's in-point, but a simple "Alt-[" (that's alt key-left bracket) is a handy keyboard shortcut that does it. It's Opt-[ on a Mac.
