Rendering 3D passes with motion blur can take forever! But motion blur can realy help sell a shot! Some of the GPU renderers (like Octane) handle this prety well but most of the time it’s faster to add blur in post. If you do a lot of 3D comping this will be your best friend!

OCD renamer intelligently renames layers based on customizable settings. You can rename layers based on effects, children based on parents, parents based on children, mattes based on which type of matte they are and which layer is matted to them.
This is one of the plugins I still find myself using all the time, if used correctly (and not too over the top) it can make your work instantly better! And it plays well with comped 3D elements too. Unleash your inner Michael Bay!
Awesome Planet Creator plugin for After Effects by Video Copilot
Plexus is a plug-in designed to bring generative art closer to a non-linear program like After Effects. It lets you create, manipulate and visualize data in a procedural manner. Not only you can render the particles, but also create all sorts of interesting relationships between them based on various parameters using lines and triangles. The workflow for Plexus is very modular allowing you to create truly infinite set of configurations and parameters.

Creates a complete duplicate of a comp hierarchy including sub-comps. If a comp is used multiple times, the comp only gets duplicated once and all remaining references point to the first duplicate. If the comps are arranged in a special folder hierarchy in the project panel, that folder hierarchy is preserved or duplicated (depending on user preference) for the duplicated comps.
