After Effects Expressions, Scripts and Presets By Ko Maruyama
AE Enhancers (or AENHANCERS.com), is a collection of over 850 different animators and compositors from all over the world who use Adobe After Effects to write special scripts, expressions, and presets for the AE community.  Not only do they answer questions and provide demonstrations how they've found new uses for features, but many times, the authors will provide the scripts and code for all.  Many people ask about how to start scripting or writing expressions - this is a great spot to start.

One of the common questions about scripting is where to start.  Alex, Paul, Stu, Mark, Lloyd, and a team too long to list, full of knowledgeable code warriors and brilliant animators, are pumping out more daily than you can imagine.  With a massive library of archived tutorials, AEnhancers.com is one of the first places to start your education.

This week, I'd like to highlight the starter lesson about creating your first script.  You can find the lesson walk-through as well as code examples by clicking on the image below (link will direct you to the AEnhancers website):

Now that Aenhancer's founder, and one of its submission leaders is here in Los Angeles, I will try to integrate some advanced discussions at our monthly MGLA (Motion Graphics Los Angeles) meetings.
