The video discusses the use of AI scripts in After Effects, including the creation of useful scripts such as sequence layers and make a line, but emphasizes the need for refinement and caution when using AI language models to generate code.
Klutzgpt is an AI script for After Effects that automates layer sequencing based on user input.
Klutzgpt is a pay-what-you-want script that automates tasks in After Effects and is recommended to support the developer.
The speaker used an AI script prompt starter to sequence layers in After Effects based on the order they were selected in by a number of frames determined by the user, including an undo group to easily undo any changes made.
AI script fixed after communication, but still had layer sequencing issue; avoid using unfamiliar words when chatting with AI and consider starting over if necessary.
The AI script was not sequencing the layers correctly, but after communicating with the AI, it was able to provide an updated script that fixed the issue of the first layer being offset by the number of frames input by the user, but still had the issue of sequencing the layers from top to bottom.
Avoid using words you don't understand when communicating with AI.
Starting over with a new chat can sometimes be the solution when the AI is not behaving as desired.
After encountering UI issues in After Effects, the speaker sought help from chatgpt to create a working UI panel for their script.
The speaker encountered an issue with the UI of an alert panel in After Effects while testing a script, but was able to easily communicate the error to an AI and eventually decided to ask for a UI panel for the script instead.
Creating a script UI panel in After Effects requires saving it as a jsx file and installing it into the script.
The speaker had issues with the panel and asked chatgpt for help in creating a framework for an After Effects UI panel with a button inside of it, which resulted in simpler code and a working panel.
Scripting with AI had its challenges, but the speaker successfully reversed layers and created a single line generator script for After Effects.
The speaker created a script using AI to reverse the order of selected layers, but encountered errors before successfully achieving the desired outcome.
The speaker encountered a character limit issue while accessing chat jbt's API, but was able to work around it by starting a new chat and asking Klutz GPT to modify the code, resulting in a faster iteration process and successful creation of a single line generator script for After Effects.
Don't hesitate to ask for help when troubleshooting code, as a fresh set of eyes can easily fix simple oversights.
The speaker created a script to draw a centered two-point open path with a stroke and slider control, but had difficulty applying the necessary expression to tie the Path property to the slider length.
Don't be afraid to ask for help when troubleshooting code, as a simple oversight can be easily fixed with a fresh set of eyes.
