What Are After Effects Presets?

Presets in After Effects are  are effect settings that can be applied to your video footage or motion graphics. Think of them as pre-made effect configurations that have been saved into a '.ffx' file so they can be used over and over again without having to replicate the same settings each and every time. For example, if you want to apply a color grading effect to your footage, you can simply apply a color grading preset and adjust the settings to your liking. The word "preset" literally means "pre-set," so think of it like an effect that has already been adjusted to the desired setting or configuration.

Benefits Of Using Presets

By using presets in AE, you can quickly apply pre-adjusted settings to layers in your timeline to make them look a certain way. You can also add presets onto adjustment layers if you want to adjust multiple solid or media layers at once - this is especially useful for color corrections and transitions between two or more clips.
