Taking inspiration from 3D apps like Maya, HandyCam was crafted to make animated AE cameras as painless as possible.


Easy orbit controls, with advanced options.

Target layers whilst moving in world-space. Option to focus on layers independent of the “look-at” layer.

Lens controls using intuitive units (mm) instead of degrees. Also features one click dolly zoom.

Easy controls for emulating handheld movement & depth of field wiggles.

Create beautiful camera moves.

Easy bake means you can send your project to another animator and open it on a computer that doesn’t have HandyCam.

  • Intuitive lens controls (mm not degrees!)
