Now we decided to make it available for everyone and make their work much easier.

Core functionalities

BluBluBar is a one-stop shop for every MoGraph or VFX artist. It combines 20 different functionalities designed to take your mind off boring and tedious tasks and let you focus on the creative part of After Effects that we all love.

Decompose

The opposite of pre-composing. Decompose any pre-comp you want!

Extract Shape Layers

Take any shape layer and break each of its groups into a separate layer. Works great while working with vector graphics!

Speedgraph

Control the flow and speed of your keyframes with great precision

Crop space

Make the comp’s size fit what’s happening inside of it – no more 4K precomps for a tiny animation!

Crop time

Make the comp’s duration fit what’s happening inside of it – no more 3 minutes long comps with 5 seconds of animation!

Sequencer

Sequence the layers any way you want. Hint –> Unlike the standard Sequence Layers feature in AAE, you can use decimal values here for much much greater control!

Copy and mirror keyframes

Copy or mirror keyframe groups that span across multiple properties and layers. Why is that not a built-in feature yet?

Layer translate

Move layers with great precision as well as ease.

Transform strokes

Make the comp’s duration fit what’s happening inside of it – no more 3 minutes long comps with 5 seconds of animation!

Change anchor point

Snap the anchor point of a layer to any of its corner or middle points!

We put a lot of work into making sure that whoever you are and whatever you use AAE for – you’ll find something for yourself in our tool. We wanted our bar to be not merely a group of niche tools, most of which will stay untouched for years to come, but a logical, thought-out creation that almost everyone will find helpful.
