Ray Dynamic Texture is your solution to tedious texture work. This tool conveniently stores textures, including their layer settings, applied effects, keyframes, expressions and layer styles. It’s simplicity is key: After you’ve set it up you can apply it directly as a texture to any selected layer. In addition to this, the tool can store your most used Effects, Shapes and Expressions—all with one click.

  • Apply textures to selected layers, Alpha Matte and Luma supported.
  • Makes the Set Matte Effect usable to texture with.

  • Build your own texture palettes.
  • Add textures, effects, shapes and expressions from timeline to palette.
  • Create Master controller for any property.
  • Invert Mattes.

Custom values in effects are currently not supported. Some examples of custom values are: Histogram in Levels, Curves Graph, Hue Saturation Channel Range and Particular Size over Life. All other values in the effects are supported. We are working to find a workaround for this limitation.


Get Started - Manual (14 min):




What happens if I send my project to someone who doesn’t have Ray installed?

That's fine, everything will still work. Ray Dynamic Texture just helps you set up your textures using After Effects.

Can I use Ray on existing projects?

For sure! You can start creating a texture palette out of the existing textures, effects, shapes and expressions. Then you can apply those quickly in your project using the buttons.

How do I collaborate with people on the same project using the same textures?

You can share the same texture palette that you are using. Save it in a separate AE project and then share it with the people on your team.
