An effect is a procress which affects a layer in which the [[layer]] is altered or enhanced. Although an effect can be used on a variety of different types layers, an [[adjustment layer]] will apply the affect to all layers below it in the [[composition]]. Adobe provides a large amount of effects that come free with After Effects. There are a number of third party effects that can by applied via [[script]], [[expression]] or [[plug-in]].
(replaceme--->The Effect menu item is the bread and butter of After Effects. From this option you can create mind-blowing effects to wow your friends and neigbors. )

Description[]

An effect is a procress which affects a layer in which the layer is altered or enhanced. Although an effect can be used on a variety of different types layers, an adjustment layer will apply the affect to all layers below it in the composition. Adobe provides a large amount of effects that come free with After Effects. There are a number of third party effects that can by applied via script, expression or plug-in.
