Version 1.7 of Useful Assistants, the premiere workflow automation tool for Adobe(R) After Effects(R), is now shipping. Version 1.7 comes with 118 time and money saving assistants.

Profound Effects(R), Inc., a leading innovator in special effects technology, is pleased to announce the availability of Useful Assistants (UA) 1.7. Shipping with 118 time and money saving assistants, Version 1.7 answers the prayer of many Adobe After Effects users. Thirty two more assistants are available on the Profound eXchange for free download by registered owners.

After Effects users such as Daniel Wilday of M360 have already benefited from such new assistants as Arrange Layers As Grid (arranges the selected layers in a grid centered in the composition) and Distribute Layers With Gap (distributes layers horizontally or vertically using a specific gap distance between the layers' bounding boxes). Daniel said, "This is excellent! It does exactly what I needed. This will save me a ton of time. Thanks you!"

Phil Spitler, freelance motion graphics designer said, "Well, what can I say? Useful Assistants has been pretty damn useful to me lately. Not only does it come with a bunch of amazing time-saving scripts but Jeff from Profound Effects has been so damn quick in replying to my requests that it has meant on more than one occasion I have spent my time doing the aspects I enjoy instead of the mundane tasks that the UA scripts can do for me. When I freelance at a new client's studio and they ask me if I want any specific plugins, UA is up in the top of the list."

Existing Useful Assistants owners can upgrade to version 1.7 for $25 (USD). Those who purchased Useful Assistants after February 1st, 2005 are entitled to the upgrade at no charge (see our store for details). Useful Assistants continues a list price of $195 (USD) for new users.
