Quick Overview

Automate your cursor animations, butttons, clicks & more!

Tired of keyframing your cursor clicks & button animations
And then doing it all over again when your client wants a revision? 

Hover automatically changes your button when you animate a cursor hovering over it (and more)!

No more keyframing button hovers, mouse clicks, and cursor hands.



How it works:


1. Auto-Update Cursor & Buttons:

Look mom, no keyframes!
Cursor changes into hand when hovering is over buttons. Buttons change color when cursor is hovering over them.

2. Easy Click Animations:

Adding a click animation is as easy as...well, a single click.
And retiming the entire click animation is as easy as dragging your "click" layer.

3. Drag Those Files:

Click the "grab layers" button to grab. Click it again to release. Done.

After Effects Grab Hand Cursor Script




  • Creates your cursor icon
  • Makes click animations 
  • Easily retime click animations by dragging a single layer
  • Automatically update button brightness when cursor hovers over it
  • Automatically change cursor to pointer hand when above any button
  • Easily grab & release layers while your cursor changes into a grabbing hand icon
  • Adjust hover brightness level on buttons (when cursor hovers over it)
  • Change your cursor icon (by updating the cursor precomp)




If you create button & cursor animations, Hover will save you headaches of time!
Don't buy Tylenol. Buy Hover. ;)

Thank you!
