Quick Overview

Blend allows users to define property states on start and end controllers. The system will blend the difference between the two states across a desired number of objects.


Blend is a tool for After Effects which allows the user to define two states for a desired number of objects to blend between.

The basic blend system creates a start and end controller which both support position, rotation, scale and opacity. The user can also include additional properties such as trim paths or fill and stroke colours by using the add property button.

The tool supports parented and 3d layers and provides the user with an easy-to-use delay system, which when combined with additional properties creates unique results.

Blend is easy to use, removes complexity and allows the user to focus on crafting beautiful animations.


You may need to ensure that the anchor points are centered on your artwork layers before creating a blend system.

The trial version is limited, you'll only be able to use a basic blend system, additional properties can only be added to a licensed system. If you purchase a license, you will need to recreate any existing systems in order to unlock the full functionality of the script.
