GIF Export

Native GIF Export

Export GIF directly from the After Effects Render Queue.
Limitation: Does not support transparency for the moment


An effect that creates… arrows

Need an arrow? Here’s the effect you need.
Choose between 39 arrowhead styles.
Straight curves or Bézier line.
You can even convert your arrow
in Shape Layer!

Add Path Vertices

Add vertices every x pixels

How to add evenly spaced vertices along a path?
Divide masks or path of shape layers using our plug-in Add Path Vertices. Select one or more path then you’ll be asked to specify the distance between 2 vertices.

Color transfer

Transfer the color mood
of an image to another

Ever wanted to use the color palette of one image or video on another?
For example, apply the colorful mood of a famous painting to your montage,
or the color range of a Hawaiian sunset to your own image?
Make it easy with Color Transfer.


Render Animated PNG file directly from AE

Gifs are great. APNGs are better.
APNG files support 24-bit colors and 8-bit transparency.
Now you can render APNG directly from your render queue. Boom.


Bake all expressions of selected layers

Discouraged by baking hundreds of expressions ?Here is your one click solution. Simply select the layers and BakeAllExpressions will bake all expressions at once ! You can choose to bake the current frame only, or the whole work area. 


A shortcut to pick a color in hex format

CopyColor is an hex color picker. Set your own shortcut to call this command. When invoked, it will copy the currently pointed color to the clipboard. Ready to be pasted in any color parameter! 


Collect all fonts used in your project

Need to collect the fonts used in your project? CollectFonts is the command you need. It will collect the fonts and copy them to the chosen folder. Voilà.
Limitation: only fonts on text layer are supported, multiple fonts on text layers is not supported


Generate the representative colors of an image

This plugin displays a band of the representative colors of your source layer.
Colors are also added to color pickers in the plug-in’s interface so you can link them using expressions. Dope.


Duplicate a layer multiple times

When creating setups for our tools like Pastiche or Newton, we often duplicate things (“I want 800 circular shapes right now!”). The Select All – Copy – Paste sequence has come to an end.
This command in the Layer menu allows you to duplicate the selected layer X number of times. Lightning fast.


Paste an image from your clipboard directly to your composition

Sometimes you just want to copy/paste an image in your timeline without importing it.
This will make your dream comes true. A command in the Edit menu that enables you to paste an image from your clipboard directly to your composition.
You can also set the location where images will be saved. Yeah.


Select the same property in every layer of your composition

It is the missing feature of the Search box in the timeline of After Effects.
You select a property (for instance the Fill Color of a shapelayer), and this command (placed in the Layer menu) will search and select every similar property found in the composition. Magic.


Remove all expressions of selected layers

Similar to the built-in Remove Expression command except that you don’t need to select individual properties. Here, all expressions found in the selected layers will be removed.Even if you have a lot. Specially if you have a lot.
