Quick Menu Gives you Fast Access to After Effects Commands

Let’s face it. Ae’s UI is pretty click intensive. I am sometimes astounded by how many clicks some things take. Select layer, select mask, select points. Even if you are seasoned Ae user, and know a lot of keyboard shortcuts, things can be better.

Quick Menu will let you search for and apply plugins, effects, presets, scripts and also menu commands.

Edgar Huanca thinks so too. This is why he created Quick Menu For After Effects. Quick Menu was made to be the fastest menu in After Effects.

Quick Menu

Quick Menu offers a low-key panel that you simply type into. Type the first few letter of what you are looking for, and Quick Menu will pop open a list of suggestions. Think of it as an expanded version of how you navigate through the Effects panel in After Effects. Only Quick Menu will let you search for and apply plugins, effects, presets, scripts and also menu commands. Pretty much everything.

Quick Menu can be brought up using a definable keyboard shortcut and is a really fast way to get what you need in After Effects.

Fast Menu Access

The idea of faster menu access in applications is not new. In after effects, Dave Jacobson recently create Commander for After Effects, which is similar. Commander was also built to be an all-in-one search and launch tool for Ae.

Commander for Ae is a fee tool, while Quick Menu will set you back $24.99 at aescripts + aeplugins.
