If you want to work faster and more efficient, it’s important to have an organized folder structure. You DON’T have to use this one, but you SHOULD have one – something – anything.  Besides, your AE folder structure is like an underwear drawer.  Keep it clean?  

Here’s a little script to help quickly make folders in an After Effects project.  These are the folders I use on a consistent basis, but you can always delete some, rename a few or not even use this script but it’s free and who doesn’t like free!

DOWNLOAD AE SCRIPT

INSTALL
WINDOWS & MAC

INSTALL

(Windows) Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects <version>\Support Files\Scripts

HERE'S A HANDY TIP!

If you’d like to load a template you dig as a default (or any template that you desire), you can have After Effects load one automatically!

In After Effects:

Edit>Preferences>New Project>Load that baby up!
