All About Master Properties in After Effects

Owen Chikazawa Shows How to Work With the New Master Properties Feature in After Effects.

The latest version of After Effects added a new Master Properties feature that lets you quickly access attributes within a pre-comp, bringing them forward and having them available by just turning down the triangle for that comp. There is a bit of setup though, and not all attributes have support within the feature.

Helping us navigate through Master Properties and how to go about using them is Motion Array and Owen Chikazawa. Their short 7-minute tutorial that covers how they work and how you can use them to gain more control and flexibility over your After Effects workflow. “It sounds too good to be true,” Owen says “but it’s actually an amazing feature that works like a charm!”
