Dugr enables you to tag the layers so they belong to groups. Those groups are listed in the panel, and it is easy to isolate them in the composition, change their attributes, etc.
The list in the center is used to select group with which you want to work. At the top of the list, you can always work with All layers, Selected layers or Not selected Layers.
The buttons above the list act with layers of chosen groups: the blue buttons are selection and isolation buttons. From left to right:
• Isolate: using visibilities and shy modes, only the layers of the chosen groups are visible in the timeline and the composition pannel.
• Isolate in the timeline only: using shy modes, only the layers of the chosen groups are visible in the timeline.
• Isolate in the comp: using visibilities, only the layers of the chosen groups are visible in the composition pannel.
• Selection: selects all the layers of the chosen groups.
• Invert: inverts the chosen groups selection.
• Leave isolation : leaves isolation and restores previous layer states.
The grey buttons are used to quickly change the attributes of the chosen groups.
Under the list, the buttons are used to manage groups: create a new group by setting its name in the text field, then validate with the Enter key or by clicking on the + button; remove chosen groups with the – button; refresh the list (re-sync with the comp) with the arrow on the right.
The two buttons at the bottom are used to add or remove selected layers from the chosen groups.
The groups are saved in the After Effects Project, and are not lost when closing it.
Even if a project is closed in isolation mode, it will still be possible to leave isolation using Dugr.
Dugr uses the comments of the layers to tag them, just show the comments column if you want to see in which group each layer belongs!
