Best hidden features of After Effects that will help you speed up your workflow

There is no doubt that After Effects has lots to offer, including stunnnig special effects and features that could help you speed up your workflow. 

In this video/article, I'd like to show you some of the less-known features of this software that are guaranteed to give you a faster & smoother working experience whether you are a motion designer or a tv producer. I will mainly cover alternate techniques for animating using mattes and masks in your motion graphics. Some of them are literally hiding in plain sight. 

  1. Preserve Underlying Transparency
  2. Blending Modes (Stencil & Silhouette, including alpha & luma versions)


I will discuss these two hidden features in details in the video down below, including where to find and how to use them. 

If you've got any questions, please feel free to reach out to me, I'll do my best to make sure your questions are answered! :)
