Manage all your client’s requests, tasks, and ideas you have, when working on a project in After Effects.
From our friends at Creative Dojo comes a simple, yet effective After Effects script for keeping tasks and info organized and handy. It can be a hassle managing all the things you need to get done, flipping between emails and AE to make sure you have everything completed. With this script, you can stay focused in AE and manage all your tasks right within the interface. VihnSon Nguyen created the Dojo Task List for his own use and is offering it for anyone to use free of charge, or for a small donation fee.
To be clear, this isn’t anything new. In fact, there’s at least 5 to-do list scripts out there on AE scripts, and probably more out there on the web. This script is nothing more than a scripting exercise to help solve a personal workflow problem and VihnSon is happy to share his results with the Dojo community.
- Add, remove, and edit list items
- Mark list items as complete
- Add titles and descriptions to list items
- Import and export list items to another machine for easy transfer
- Intuitive and simple UI
- Dockable within AE
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.
VinhSon Nguyen is a motion graphics designer and hosts a series of creative design tutorials related to Adobe After Effects & Cinema 4D. He is also a Tuts+ Premium course instructor, pianist, and coffee fanatic. He enjoys teaching various subjects and loves to improvise music.
