Chapter 10. Effects Fundamentals > Using Favorite Effects

Using Favorite Effects

Sometimes, you create a complex effect that you're particularly proud of, or need to reuse frequently. After Effects 4.1 introduces the ability to save even a combination of effect settings—including keyframes—as a favorite effect.

You save favorite effects as independent, cross-platform files, which use an .ffx extension. Because favorite effects are independent files, you can store them separately from your project, easily access them for other projects, and even share them with other After Effects artists (how generous). To facilitate your work even more, the 20 most recently used or saved favorites are accessible through the Effects > Recent Favorites menu command.
