Welcome Welcome to my site. What I've tried to assemble here is a resource for folks that want to learn more about expressions and scripting in After Effects. It's been quite a while since I've had time to update things, but I'm hopeful that I'll be able to roll out new topics more frequently now.

If you have comments, questions, or find an error—please contact me..
