Chapter 10. Effects Fundamentals > Using Favorite Effects

Using Favorite Effects

Occasionally, you'll create a complex effect that you're particularly proud of or that you need to reuse frequently. You can 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 so that you can easily access them for other projects, or share them with other After Effects artists (how generous). To further facilitate your work, After Effects makes it possible for you to access your 20 most recently used or saved favorites via the Effects > Recent Favorites menu command.
