Dojo Screenshot Script: Save Screenshots in After Effects Instantly

As a guy who saves a lot of screenshots in After Effects daily, I need a fast and simple way to export screenshots without having to rumble through the Render Queue, set a name, change format type, set a destination, etc. I developed a very basic solution that was integrated into my Dojo Toolkit script that allowed me to take screenshots with a click of a button. The problem is, my Dojo Toolkit script isn’t the slimmest of the bunch and many people were unaware of its screenshot functionality. The solution: Dojo Screenshot

I took the screenshot functionality of Dojo Toolkit and made it its own script for a very slim and simple interface, dockable anywhere without taking up space. By doing so, I am better able to bring new options to the screenshot functionality in an easier and more organized fashion.

Dojo Screenshot Screenshot 01

  • Saves a .PNG file screenshot of your active composition
  • Change default save destination (default is Desktop)
  • Automatically names your files by composition name and frame number
  • Slim and simple UI for easy dockable access


This script is a free script under the “Name Your Own Price” platform, so if you find this script useful, feel free to donate whatever amount you’d like. You can download Dojo Screenshot and donate here.

If you’d rather skip the store procedures and download it immediately, you can unlock the download link by clicking on one of the social lockers above.

Again, this is a very basic implementation of taking screenshots, but it’s a fast method nevertheless. I’ll be developing some extra features in the near future such as naming conventions and possibly JPEG support. Stay tuned! Hopefully this script will be useful to some of you. If you have any suggestions or feedback, let me know in the comments!

  1. Never thought it was a huge issue to just “save frame as” and save to whatever file type you’d like in photoshop..but good to know none the less 🙂
