Easy Search Tool | The Ultimate After Effects Workflow Script

Here is my second Script “Easy Search Tool | The Ultimate After Effects Workflow Script”.
In this one we took the After Effects Scripting developement to the next Level..
I can Guarantee that no other 100% After effects Script has all the features we added in such a dynamic and “clever-built “way..


  • Revolutionary ScriptUI features with seamless navigation and dynamic user interface .
  • Compact user interface takes no space in the AE workspace
  • Works seamlessly both in MacOs And Windows
  • No loading , no waiting , it just works
  • Native clean and simple Javascript 100% Future Proof works with After Effects CC 2018 and above version (and will work with any AE version in the future!
  • Interactive UI ( Shows only the desired Search results and takes literally no space )

  • Dynamic list that expands procedural to search result
  • Categorized and properly shorted sorted results with dynamic icons.
  • Filter categories that you want to show up ( Effects , Scripts,Animation Presets, Menu Comands , Expressions , Snippets , Projects.aep , Panel items)
  • Clean UX ( launch with the hotkey of your choice )

  • Dynamic window option to open exactly where your mouse cursor is and directly begin typing ( a really revolutionary feature for AE scripting )
  • Fixed window you can have the search bar placed anywhere on you screen and access with the same hotkey or with mouse click.
  • Auto Close option , you can have the search bar to close after an action is completed.
  • Modular and adaptive to users

  • Machine learning ability feature to sort the search results by the frequency of usage !
  • add to favourites (favourites will show up first in search with a highlighted icon)
  • add to black-list (will hide from search results you can call them back at any time )
  • add to ShortCuts (This is where we take the script to a whole new level by adding custom shortcuts to the search bar and access them directly )
  • Shortcuts also have the option to rearrange the order(categorize results per users taste) and add custom icons for a more customized experience.
  • favourites,Blacklist & Shortcurts work for everything (exept panel items due to them being unique for every project)
  • Also favourites, Blacklist and ShortCuts are updated within a json file and refresh based on the watchfolders
  • eg * if we have some scripts and projects that are in the favourites, blacklisted or Shortcuts and are no longer in the watch folder they will be removed from the json file too so everything runs clean,
    (seamlessly updating and cleaning the script cashe is tricky if you consider the result categories and the combination/complexity of favorites, blacklisted and shortcut items)
  • Alerts & HelpTips

  • We got rid all of the alerts and simply moved them to show up dynamically on the search bar as a simple text , this will save you a ton of “ok” clicks and will explain what is happening in a clean way !
  • ( Eg . No selected layer … , No Comp in project… , Applied (x) Effect )
