The Layer Charmer

Boa is a plugin for After Effects built to distort layers along mask paths.  It makes warping layers along a path easy, fast and precise.

Have you ever wished After Effects had a “Spline Deformer”? Then say hello to Boa!

  • Warp any source along any mask path
  • Rotate and twist along the path
  • Full control over start, end, scale and z position along the path
  • Mesh definition and sub-sampling for complete quality control
  • Extrude and contour in 3D!
  • Reacts to comp camera and lights
  • Super fast rendering
  •  Fully native plugin
