We’ve all been there…

You’re working on a project in After Effects and BAM, brick wall.
After Effects just doesn’t have the feature that you need. It’s
times like this that we all turn to places like aescripts +
aeplugins, and to the real MoGraph heros, the plugin and script
developers. They create the tools that we Motion Designers need to
get our jobs done, or maybe just make our lives easier.

If you’ve ever used an AE plugin, script, or expression you’re going
to want to check out this interview with Zack Lovatt. You might not
know him by name, but you probably know some of the tools that he’s
worked on, like Flow and Explode Shape Layers. In this episode of
our Podcast Joey gets the inside scoop on what it’s like to be a
plugin developer for After Effects. They talk about everything you
could want to know about becoming a developer, from how to get
started to how much you can make (hint; it’s more than just beer
money), and even what the future of developing tools for After
Effects might look like.
