Matting in AE is tedious. Effect Matte does the hard work for you in a single click.


Effect Matte can be customised and animated using the following parameters:

  • Expansion

  • Roundness

  • Feathering



There's a transform tab that's % based so you can create transitions in seconds.


You can even manually tweak the bounds of the matte.

Video tutorials:

We recently did a behind the scenes preview of Effect Matte on our blog show "Show Me Everything":


Effect Matte is compatible with AE CS6 and up, 32bpc color, with text and video layers.

Requirements & limitations:

  • Effect Matte requires layers to have continuous rasterization enabled.

  • Effect Matte is compatible with layers that have parents, but only on CC2018.

  • “Auto Set Matte” feature is not compatible with shape layers
