smartREKT is a Rectangle Tool for After Effects that creates a Shape Layer with Advanced Size Options.
An internal After Effects Rectangle Tool creates a Shape Layer that only size from the center of the shape.
However, smartREKT gives more options to size the Rectangle Shape from different pivot points.
It also creates a smartREKT based on the size of the selected layer. If nothing is selected in the composition when smartREKT button is pressed, it creates a smartREKT in the center of the composition.
If a layer is selected when smartREKT button is pressed, it creates a smartREKT with the exact same width and height as the selected layer and it places smartREKT in the center of the pivot point of the selected layer.
smartREKT works on text layers, rasters layers, vector layers, shape layers, video layers, and After Effects comps.
