Control your keyframes
Link is a brand new tool that makes controlling almost any layer property a snap. Link allows you to "link" an endless number of properties to a single set of keyframes. A simple UI with tons of functionality. Duplicate, Link, Select and Control! Make sure to use the Hot Links for a hyper driven workflow!
LINK ANY PROPERTY
Keyframe management isn't fun. Projects explode from 10 keyframes to 1000's in just a couple of clicks. Going back to make revisions becomes a hassle and time sink. Link gives you a simple UI to Link, Delay, Offset and Control any Layer property. You can also Cycle your Links through an infinite Color Palette for some killer animations!
Using Link in your workflow won't limit anything you do. The code and Links are created relatively - so your changes don't have to be absolute! Change your Temporal data (timing, delay) and Spatial (position, rotation etc.) without breaking a sweat.
If you still want added control or more animation - add secondary animations or keyframes to your Linked layers. Simple as that, Link is here to work for you.

A complete overview and general use is available (see bottom of page). For every new Link use or experiment a Summit video will be uploaded and made available for free.
Upcoming videos include a Liquid Rainbow Feather and City Build. Expect to see new Link updates, code optimizations and overview of the new Link functionality in upcoming releases.
Link v1.5 has been tested in After Effects CS5 - CC (2014) and works on all systems. Older versions are not recommended - but may support Link.
If you encounter any errors please contact me HERE.
Link v1.5 is fast to install and should be easy.
- Run After Effects as an Administrator (if you aren't already a System Admin for your computer)
- Check "Allow Scripts to Write Files and Access Network" under Preferences
- Open Link from your Windows drop down. In the top right of the Link UI > Select the Drop Down > Install.
- Click the Install button and restart After Effects and you're ready to go hyper-drive!

All Issues - Resolved
[Mar 15, 2015] Checked code many many times and couldn't find single error on creation. Link v1.5 user John H. discovered an issue with Windows 8 default permissions and installs and offered the following solution. All credit for finding goes to John H (a true rockstar):
- Judging from the source of the problem your customers are experiencing are probably all PC users and not Mac. Here is a screenshot of where they need to get to HERE (or download file directly HERE)
Copy the existing PresetEffects.xml (Windows(your version) > Program Files > Adobe > Adobe After Effects (your version) > Support Files > PresetEffects.xml) to your desktop.
Check mark every permission (as seen in the above links) under every user or group (to be on the safe side) and hit "OK" and "Apply"
If the file disappears, drag your copied file back from the desktop and you should be able to install Link v1.5 properly.
Per John H. - "The problem isn't your code, the problem is Windows 8 (at least) has automatic security settings for XML type files that doesn't include Write or Modify permissions."
[Mar 10. 2015] A couple users are again having issues with the installation process and Admin rights for Link v1.5 - I've checked thoroughly on ALL languages and After Effects CS6 - CC 2014 before issuing the update. Am currently working with users to find reason for error before making Link v1.5 available again. Sincere apologies for delay (no pun intended) and working hard to provide solution.
[Mar 8. 2015] An small bug was discovered with Link v1.0 and the issue has been resolved! Any previous users of Link v1.0 will get an update and fix to Link v1.5 immediately. The update introduces a couple new features for improved usability! Thanks for checking out Mt. Mograph! You rock!
