- If you create a group that contains 3D layers, and it is meant to be the parent of the other layers header of the group is now automatically transformed into 3D.
- “Store Comps” now don’t need to be kept in the “Stored Layers” folder in the Project panel. It is useful when using tools such as “Declutter” that will overwrite the existing folder structure.
- Issues were fixed after updating to the latest AE version. Workflower will now alert you to visit the Workflower shortcuts panel to set shortcuts to the latest version.
- If you have upgraded to v1.1 from an older version, then the default setting of “Trim Matte Merges using only the Group Matte FXs Matted Layer was incorrectly set to off. The default will now be set to “on”.
- If you have a duplicate of the file of Workflower in the “ScriptUI Panels” folder (either within the system folder or the user directory), Workflower will now advise you to delete the file. (Otherwise, the script will not function.)
