  1. Hello! Many thanks for the script! He is incredible!
    Do you know if it works well in the 2019 version? For Windows.

    I tested it and gave a problem here. It says: Can not execute script on line 174. undefined is not an object

    1. Thanks Denio!
      The script is tested on the latest version of After Effects.
      Please make sure you have the latest Version and the script is installed correctly as written in the Installation Instructions.
      If you have a bug to report please contact us

  2. Amazing! I was struggling fro figure out how to copy comps and couldn’t remember the process. Now I don’t have to worry about the process, it is just a shortcut away. Thank you so much.

  3. This script is great. Just what I was looking for.

    Is there a way to disable the confirmation dialogue in the end… I want it to just duplicate the layer without making me click on the dialogue box in the end.

    Otherwise it’s perfect.

    1. Hi JOAO
      Thanks! The dialog box in the end shows a summery of the action taken, and a link to the site. That link is what keeps True Layer Duplicator 100% free.
      Because we just LOOOOVE you people and we want you to visit us, as much as possible 🙂

      1. Hi, and thank you for your reply.

        I understand the need to bring people to the site. That said, as a workflow tool that I use to speed up my work, having an extra button press slows things down.

        Any plans on releasing a paid version without the dialog box?

        And again, thanks for the making the tool in the first place!

        1. No plans to release a paid versions of TLD. That’s a nice idea we will consider adding it to our other paid products (the free version will always remain).

  4. This looks truly awesome and it might be just want I’m looking for. There’s one question though…True Comp Duplicator offers a tool for batch renaming and easy organization. Is that a feature that’s included with TLD?
