Extend, enhance, empower
Adobe After Effects is renowned as a highly extensible application for a reason. Built with a modular architecture, and with a thriving third-party community, opportunities abound for building for After Effects. The After Effects software development kits (SDKs) let you extend the capabilities of After Effects using plug-ins, scripts, and panels that integrate seamlessly into existing workflows. Create stunning visual effects, manipulate project elements, and automate complex tasks.
You can also sell and distribute your extensions to the entire Creative Cloud install base using Adobe Exchange, which is integrated with After Effects.
