Overview
Finally, create Photoshop style groups directly in the timeline. Comprehensive functionality to mimic how Photoshop handles groups. One of the most requested features in After Effects. Now with Group Mattes, Isolate layers and Baking of Groups into pre-comps.

This is a simple plugin script for After Effects that ports the Layer Groups paradigm from Photoshop.



What's New in Version 2.20:
Child layer name change when working with groups will autofix existing expressions.

When un-baking (un-precomping) Layer expressions will work if they are still actually valid.

Minor settings changes as layer names won't break expressions now. 

Pretty pointers name changed to "Arrow Triangle". 

In a UI panel on closing settings window, Layer Groups will attempt to close panel and reload 
itself, negating the need to restart the script manually. This allows quicker settings changes.

Option to not use Arrow Triangle in group name. (Used to show collapsed state). Users might want to
do this if putting expressions on the Group Layer. ie. won't break if expanding and collapsing. 

Option to link opacity of Group Layer to children. This is done with expressions. You must have 
`Use Arrow Triangles` disabled. (Group Layer name won't change on expand-collapse). So holding down Shift
key on making group, will parent, so all transforms can be controlled by Group Layer, this addition adds
the missing one, opacity.

Addition of [Move Group Up/Down] buttons.

Bug fixed where locked layers would prevent stacking and moving of layer groups. Auto stacking should work better.
layers are unlocked, stacking applied and then relocked now.

[Select Child Layers] button added to UI +Shift, to select all children of selected groups.
This can help with trimming and moving all child layers as a unit.

Removal of option to use < and V in place to the `Arrow pointer`- if using expressions,(referencing the name of the Group Layer) it's better for the Group Layer name to not be changing on collapse expand.
