I was working on some classic 2D motion graphic elements lately and found that staggering layers in the timeline was a painful, yet necessary process to get some poppy mesmerizing motion graphics. After a few days of work, I created a nifty little nifty script that would solve a majority of my problems in terms of offsetting and staggering layers. This is Dojo Shifter.
There are already a ton of layer shifting scripts out there, some better than mine, some not as advanced, and most of them are free. Dojo Shifter is not a script that tries to surpass these other scripts, nor is it a script that is trying to revolutionize or bring something new to the table. Dojo Shifter is a script I developed primarily to solve my issues and to practice my scripting abilities. I love to release the tools I develop to the community, so hopefully you find this tool useful.
- Stagger layers on the timeline
- Define stagger offset amount based on frames or seconds
- Control staggering order (ascending, descending, etc)
- Easily offset and stagger layers randomly
- Shift selected layers forward based on frames/seconds
