Tutorial: Design your own After Effects Plug-in Tutorial from Plugin Everything

In this tutorial, Digby from Plugin Everything dives into the Adobe After Effects SDK, to implement a simple line drawing algorithm (Bresenham’s line algorithm). On Windows, you’ll need Visual Studio, which is shown in the video, but if you’re on Mac, you can use Xcode.

Stuff you’ll need:

  • Visual Studio download – I just googled it and there does appear to be a version of Visual Studio for Mac as well but I have never used it so I don’t know how the Windows and Mac versions compare.
  • Xcode for Mac
