lots of still photos in after effects: is there a quick way to line them up?
on May 25, 2011 at 7:06:03 pm

Hi guys
my first time here and pretty new to AE. I am working on two homework assignments and creating a motion design using many still photos. Is there a way that I can import or manage them to "line up" in the timeline every so many frames? (basically if I import them they all stay on top of each other in the same spot and I have to move them manually... all suggestions and feedback truly very very appreciated!
thanks
raffaella

It's called the Sequence Layers keyframe assistant:

If you want 1-second long stills, put the timeline cursor at 29 Frames. Select all the layers and use the option ] (right bracket) keyboard shortcut (mac) to trim the layers all at once. Then use Sequence Layers.

Check out this script:

Download the project files. Inside the zip is a script. Install it in the Script folder in your adobe folder.
