Just wanted to let everyone know that I just posted a little article on Notes. Within the article I touch on a common problem we’ve seen since the day we started selling AE Project Files. Often times a buyer in a different country will open one of our projects, and since the expressions we’re written in English, they throw errors, and don’t function properly.
In the past the only option was to change their After Effects language setting to English, which was less than ideal, especially for people that have no experience with the English language. Lloyd Alvarez recently released a script for After Effects that quickly universalizes the expressions to make them compatible with ALL languages.
At this point in time, we’re suggesting that all of you use this script for all of your projects that make use of expressions. But in the near future, there’s a GOOD chance that this will be a requirement. The script is currently on their “name your own price” model. Which means it can be obtained cheaply, making it easier to require it. But show the AEScripts community, and Lloyd some love. If the tool means you’re able to better support your buyers, which in turn leads to a better author presence here, pay something for the script.
If you have any questions, feel free to post them here.
