A timestamp script for After Effects

Why a timestamp script?

With a timestamp you can do things like…

  • Mark the timeline necessary from animatic to finished spot.
  • Do version tracking and timelines for alternate takes.
  • Follow job tracking info for project management and billing.

The first version of this script will be a simple date and time timestamp. We’ll follow up with demos on how to connect this script to databases for project and scene information to help with project management.

(notes)Due to limitations in the accessibility of formatting options for Text Layers via scripting the first version of this script only uses a left side orientation.
