After Effects has become one of the most useful tools for designing and prototyping animations for interactive projects. But AE is a complex tool with thousands of features to learn. Fortunately there are many plugins, tools and utilities to speed up your workflow, handle time consuming tasks, or deal with complex animation curves.

The most important thing for a UI designer working with After Effects to design UI motion, is to find tools to help transform AE animations into clean CSS or JS animations, so we’ve decided to share a very useful chapter about this topic from Louis Ansa’s fantastic course: Design meaningful experiences through an animation system.
