Top Free and Premium Utility Extensions /Addons for After Effects
Plugins are best known for their utilitarian effects in help you perform additional functions with your After Effects software. Any After Effects plugins list is incomplete without including some which deal with performing simple functions or utilities, which go a long way in creating the best motion picture graphics that you can design with your After Effects software.
Functionality over Show
Since the ultimate aim of any software that creates is to focus on providing usable products, these after effect plugins become extremely useful. Since they do not generally perform complex and showy effects, they are usually available for download, free from numerous websites. Function focused plugin packages give most importance to effectiveness and smoothness of rendering, and therefore contain a number of tools for production and effects artists. They can be very useful as time-saving devices that perform otherwise complicated functions easily, or allow you to run loops or repetitive functions. Premium motion picture graphics rely on image plugins, and many of these are utility plugins, that allow you to edit/arrange your creations best. Functions such as creating camera-aware colour gradients, or mapping images can be performed by these extensions. Numerous utility addons focus on copy-pasting images to Windows clipboards. This can bypass the need to save every frame when working on a sequence or video, or reopening frames repeatedly, and save a lot of time. It is also possible to paste these images onto other software, such as Photoshop, with the help of these functional plugins.
