NO KEYFRAME
LEFT BEHIND

Kangaroo duplicates your layers and treats each keyframe individually,
making it easy to have layers behave differently across time.

ADJUST KEYFRAME VALUES

Keyframes that have changed will be updated on each new copy, one by one.

OFFSET KEYFRAMES

Freely move your keyframes around on the first copy and Kangaroo will continue offsetting them on each new copy it creates

SET EASING

Kangaroo even detects changes to the Easing of your keyframes, so each new layer can behave in a different way

RELEASE YOUR KANGAROO

Kangaroo touches so many workflows and use cases.
It will not sit on your shelf of unused plugins

Educational Motion Graphics

We often have to find ways to present boring information in an exciting way. Organic repetition is a great way to do that, and Kangaroo makes it easy

Perfect Loops

Boomers and Zoomers alike love perfect loops. Kangaroo will help you nail the spacing and timing between repeating elements

Isometric Animations

With the precision of Kangaroo, placing copies in an isometric space becomes easier than ever before, and you can re-time each layer to create organic movement in seconds

Breakable Patterns

Anyone can make a pattern, but only a few make ones that challenge the viewer's expectations. With Kangaroo you can fill the screen with copies and selectively choose which ones to animate and how

Loading Screens

Loaders often use repetition to create an illusion of movement. Whether you want to place each element around a circle, in a row, or a column, Kangaroo will help you get there in seconds

3D Transforms

Use kangaroo to rotate new copies across an anchor point, and create 3D structures made of 2D layers, like this ring of text layers

Extrude

With Kangaroo, you can create hundreds of copies of a layer to create a 3D extrusion effect. Kangaroo's power of accepting most properties means you can easily create color transitions, or even animate the extrusion itself

Grids

Using a single copy of a layer, you can create a row. Once you have a row, you can duplicate it to create a grid

Rigs & Expressions

When you reference Expression Controls in your expressions, you can use Kangaroo to create a new value for each copy, like this example where each layer traces a different point on a path as well as a different color

Let the future unveil itself

With Kangaroo for After Effects

Does Kangaroo apply expressions to my layers?

No Expressions!

Kangaroo keeps your project clean and does not force you into a workflow that is not your own.
Use Kangaroo to achieve the result you want, and then continue to work on your project as you normally would.

Is Kangaroo hard to use?

Kangaroo is easy to use

All Kangaroo does it predicting your next steps and automating them for you.
Most of the time you will only need to click one button to get the result you want. It doesn't get easier than that.

Will Kangaroo take up a lot of screen space?

Kangaroo is small and compact

With only a couple of buttons, you will barely notice Kangaroo is there.
You can even make the panel width smaller to force it into a single column.

When the contents of the panel are bigger than what you can see, you can scroll to see the rest.

Is the Kangaroo panel dockable?

Yes

Kangaroo behaves like any other panel in After Effects.
You can dock it anywhere you want, or choose to keep it floating.

Will the Kangaroo punch me in the face like a real Kangaroo?

No (probably)

But if you do get punched in the face by a Kangaroo, please send the community a video of it
