Comp Screenshot is a simple Utility plug-in that takes a pixel perfect screenshot of the active Composition and saves a PNG to the Desktop folder. Best of all, it's free.
- Download and put the plugin files in your After Effects Plug-ins folder.
- Once installed, you'll see an option in the Composition Menu, a new item called "Take Comp Screenshot".
- Click that Menu item and a PNG file of the composition at the current time in the timeline will be saved to your Desktop folder.
Mac OS X Keyboard Shortcut (Optional)
If you're on a Mac, you can also create a nifty keyboard shortcut using these instructions.
Will it ever support JPG?
Compscreenshot plug-in has been updated to support latest macOS versions and Apple Silicon architecture natively.
