Using Layer Indexes With Expressions in After Effects for Automating Repetitive Tasks

Creating smart workflows for repetitive tasks is an important endeavor while working. Especially in After Effects where you can be easily faces with a mountain of repetitive tasks quickly. Dylan Winter shows a process for using the Layer Indexes for Expressions in After Effects to easily automate tasks that you may need to do more than once.

In this tutorial I propose two plausible uses for the layer index property when working with expressions

In these examples, Dylan shows how to create images that animate in a specific way in After Effects, showing how you are able to automate the process using After Effects Layer Indexes With Expressions showing a workflow for using TimeRemap for keeping a clean composition structure for your project in After Effects, and another example where he uses the After Effects Layer Indexes with valueAtTime to create a animated cascade effect on any layer attribute.
