Profound Effects Ships Useful Assistants for After EffectsSoftware automates tasks and enhances functionality
Useful Assistants provides 35 individual Assistants for automating tasks, and more will be available online at no additional charge, according to Profound Effects. Current Assistants provide tools for copying and pasting whole groups of Expressions, saving work with incremental file names, generating Expressions automatically for tasks like slaving lights to cameras, automatically inserting markers at cut points in the footage and several other functions.
Aside from the preset Assistants included with the software, users can also define their own. The company says that "virtually any sequence of user operations be encapsulated into an Assistant." Users can also save sequences of Assistants.
