The fastest way to auto-orient graphics to a path in After Effects.
What’s the most natural way to draw attention to something? Point to it! Until now, creating a basic animated arrow in After Effects required complex expressions and parenting, which were tedious to setup and equally frustrating to duplicate.
With Easy Arrows, you can create a flexible auto-orienting setup in just 1 click! Just draw a path and click “Create Easy Arrow”. That’s literally less than 5 seconds. Now you can focus on more important things, like actually animating.
With Easy Arrows, you can:
Use built-in arrows or custom graphics & compositions.
Easily update your path after running the script.
Control styling of the stroke, however you like.
Quickly change color & size of entire setup.
Precomp for easy duplication.
