Puppet Tools 3

Rig a character in After Effects with one click.

Do you struggle with complex animation rigs in After Effects? I get it. Rigging a character is tough. And it takes time to do it right.

That’s exactly why I built PuppetTools. It’s easy to learn, even easier to use and takes the headache out of making a great character rig. And you can use it to rig any kind of artwork—Illustrator, Photoshop, PNGs, Shape Layers, you name it. And all with 1-click.

Build and customize controllers for any kind of artwork—Photoshop, Illustrator, PNG, Shape Layers, Mask points, etc.

Rig a character in minutes. Comes with a free practice rig!

If you’re running CC 2018 or newer, you can make controls for Shape Layer and Mask paths!

  • Works with any type of artwork (PSD, AI, Transparency)
  • Supports shape layer and mask path points
  • Super easy to use

Less clicking, more animating.
