“I use smartREKT almost every day. It saves a huge amount of time and lets me focus more on design. My favorite feature is the ability to quickly change the location of the anchor point at the click of a button.

Q: Can I use smartREKT on multiple projects?

A: Yes!

 

Q: How to install smartREKT on a PC and MAC?

A: Click on this link to view the PDF with instructions on how to install SmartRekt.

 

Q: SmartREKT creates a blank shape layer in the timeline without any properties, what should I do?

A: This happens when the script file was installed without the assets folder. It’s crucial to move smartREKT 3.2.jsxbin file & smartREKT_3.2_assets folder together into the ScriptUI Panels folder. SmartRekt will not work properly without the assets folder living in the same place as the script file. Click here to view proper instructions on how to install SmartREKT. If you’re still experiencing these issues, please contact us at [email protected]

 

Q: Nothing happens when I click on fill/stroke color UI icon, what should I do to see the popup color picker panel?

A: Color picker feature requires access to write files and that’s something After Effects has disabled by default. It’s very important that you go to the Scripting & Expressions panel of the application preferences and make sure Allow Scripts to Write Files and Access Network is checked. If you’re still experiencing these issues, please contact us at [email protected]

 

Q: I’m trying to save my default UI preferences and it doesn’t seem to remember my saved preference when I relaunch SmartREKT, what should I do to fix this?

A: To fix this issue, two things need to happen.

    • SmartRekt requires access to write files and After Effects has that feature disabled by default. It’s very important that you go to the Scripting & Expressions panel of the application preferences and make sure Allow Scripts to Write Files and Access Network is checked. This feature has to be checked in order for After Effects to save your default UI settings.
    • When you click on the Save UI button to save default UI settings,  After Effects automatically exports a Text Document File called defaulUI.txt into smartREKT_3.2_assets folder located in Scripts/ScriptUI Panels folder. Make sure you have user permission to write files into smartREKT_3.2_assets folder. If you’re still experiencing these issues, please contact us at [email protected]

    If you create motion graphics in After Effects, you need smartREKT from Ukramedia. It’s that simple.

    This script is simply amazing. After only a few days I know how much time this is going to save me. I’ve spent an embarrassing amount of time in the past trying to create linked text/shape layers for dynamic titles using expressions I didn’t really understand, and they never turned out like I wanted. smartREKT makes that process a breeze, and gives me exactly what I want with editable, predictable, and efficient results.

    Ukramedia’s tutorial videos for this script are awesome too. Once I learned the basics there, I started getting creative adjusting parameters and values, duplicating smartREKT layers, and re-ordering them to create truly unique graphics that will elevate my work. This script is very well thought out, with the the ability to key-frame every aspect of the smartREKT layers (including anchor points location, which really impressed me). This makes it a powerful tool that I can’t believe I didn’t have sooner.

    As if this awesome script weren’t enough, Ukramedia has been a great company to work with. In addition to making thoughtful, powerful, and accessible After Effects tools for people like me, they have a personal touch and sincerity that has truly left a good impression with me.

    It’s strange to say I’m “thankful” for an After Effects script…but here I am saying it.
