Sketch2AE is a Sketch app Plugin from Google SUMux Motion Design Team. It offers “Live After Effects layers straight from Sketch artboards”. This is a new plugin (different from an older one of similar name). From the developer:

Sketch layers may now be imported into After Effects without redrawing everything in Illustrator. Avoid the startling realization that you have to repeat the whole import process simply because you forgot to split one element out onto its own layer or that type has to be converted into live text as an additional process per layer.

Quickly export selected layers or a whole artboard from Sketch with type metrics, transform data, images, symbol hierarchy, and grouping intact. It’s little bit better than the native Illustrator => AE import. Hooray.
