Easy is a keyframe assistant for After Effects. It is a powerful tool hiding in a little panel that will help you build smooth animations in a few clicks. We believe that the key for good animation is in the right timing. However working with keyframes and the Graph Editor sometimes can be very time consuming. That’s why we wanted to create a tool which will speed up this process and give you the ability to create smooth animations almost instantly. Easy has a build-in collection with carefully crafted animation presets that will be applied almost to any property you want. Each preset is represented by a visual graph that will give you a better understanding of the motion that will be applied. If you are an advanced user you can use Shortcut Mode, which uses even less space. The result of applying a preset is a few keyframes which are completely editable. Easy doesn’t use Expressions which sometimes are hard to understand and edit. You can use Easy with multiple layers and properties at once.
We believe in the potential of Easy and hope you will adopt itis as an everyday tool.

We did our best to blend in Easy's interface with your current After Effects Workspace. From the bumpy CS 5 design to the new flat version of CC 2015 we've got you covered! Also Easy has a shortcut mode that will take even less space and will fill Easy's window.
