The Production tool is all about setting up comp structures and slates for ongoing production work, allowing other artists & production support to be able to navigate projects reliably.
Another component in the Production tool was a Duplicate feature, allowing artists to create variations while automatically searching for and replacing specific text in comp names, layer names, and project text.
The Output tool is all about... output!
When building AE projects to use as assets for other steps of the pipeline, artists at Create needed a tool to quickly separate elements in projects out into various render pass comps.
The system we established worked by identifying relevant elements by label colour per-pass, and the tool would then isolate all layers that matched those label colours into the given render pass.
