After Effects opacity workflow help? Scripts? Plugins?


#1

I’m working on a lip syncing gig where I’m switching out premade phonemes in After Effects. I’m just keying opacity so I don’t have to deal with skyscrapers of layers on the timeline.

Right now I’m just navigating to the keyframe and adjusting the Opacity key to 0% or 100%, but it takes, collectively, a really long time to be looking, aiming, clicking, dragging (sometimes imperfectly), realigning my sight to the keyframe, making sure I’m on the right layer, etc.

Is there any way to create opacity keyframes with a single button press, like the 0-9 keys do in Photoshop for a layer? Are there scripts or plugins for this?

Thank you~!
