I recently wrote an After Effects script that will cut a layer into a set amount of slices, and we’ve decided to give it away here for free.
Aside from cutting a layer into slices, you can also rotate the slices, choke the slices, feather the slices, offset the slices, offset the sliced layers in time, and randomize the sliced layers. This script is a little different from other slicing scripts out there, as it utilizes the linear wipe effect.
Included in the download package are the script itself and an After Effects project (CS6+) with a few experiments I’ve created using the script.
I am not an expert scripter by any means, so if you find a bug with the script please let me know and I’ll do my best to get it sorted out. I’d also love to hear any of your feedback. Good or bad.
Oh! Also, send us links to anything you create with the script. We’d love to check out your work.
Below, you’ll see a tutorial on how to use the script, as well as, a couple of After Effects templates created using the script.
