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!
(Windows) Program Files\Adobe\Adobe After Effects <version>\Support Files\Scripts
(Mac OS) Applications/Adobe After Effects <version>/Scripts
To run the script:
File > Scripts > Quick Folders
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!
