Utility Box is a free After Effects Script that contains a variety of tools. The idea behind it was to create something like Cinema 4D’s motion graphics tools like clone. You can use this free script to easily generate layer copies in a variety of different ways. You can also manipulate the transform properties of multiple layers at the same time, and do a lot of other useful things.
This script helps users create cool motion graphic effects by giving utilities that can duplicate layers, cloning layers in arrays, split layers, and more.
How to use
In After Effects, go to Edit -> Preferences -> General, make sure “Allow Scripts to Write Files..” option is checked. Now you can run the script by going to File -> Scripts -> Run the script.
To run this script as a dockable panel, you have to place the .jsx file in your After Effects root directory -> Support Files -> Scripts -> Scripts UI Panels.
