DuIO

A collection of tools for exporting and importing stuff in After Effects

DuIO requires DuAEF, the Duduf After Effects Framework. Two builds of the DuIO API are available:

  • DuIO_api.jsxinc does not include DuAEF, and can be used to compine multiple Duduf APIs with a single copy of DuAEF.
    Be careful to grab the right version of DuAEF in this case.
  • DuAEF_DuIO_api.jsxinc includes all dependencies, with DuAEF, and is easier to include in your scripts.
