The Claymation Effect is a one-of-a-kind tool for turning ordinary footage into a stop-motion clay animation. What would normally take weeks to create can now be made in minutes in After Effects, simply by dropping in your video footage, photo, cartoon, graphics, or logo. Convenient slider controls allow you to customize the colors, detail level, frame rate, and more.
Whether it's for a music video, logo animation, title graphics, or animated short film... the Claymation Effect is fun, realistic, and easy to use!
Convert Footage & Images to a
STOP-MOTION CLAY ANIMATION!
"I worked at Will Vinton Studios for 11 years, the creator that popularized the Claymation process that most people know, and have to say this is a very convincing effect to what is normally a very time-consuming process."
- Jamie Haggerty

The Claymation Effect template is not a plugin. It's an Adobe After Effects project file, commonly known as a "template" because the work is already done and the user needs only to insert their footage and make their own adjustments. This template is compatible with version CS5 as well as all later versions of After Effects.
