A new way to
create & share
After Effects content.

Hyle allows you to generate content from a simple and understandable text syntax.

Readable

Hyle’s syntax is focused on elegance and readability. What you read is really what you'll get.

Shareable

Sharing text is easy. Save it as a gist, send it as an email, tweet it or even fax it (but please don't).

Fast

Copy, paste, process. Or parse a standalone file. Either way, stay in After Effects and forget the binary ffx files.


Start faster, work better

Hassle-free creation of project structures and layers.

folders:
  - Assets
  - | Audio
  - | | Music
  - | | V.O.
  - | Footage
  - Scenes
compsositions:
  - name: Titles
    folder: Scenes
    layers:
      - type: Text
        text: That’s one Hyle of a script!

Focus on the business

Small and easily manageable chunks of information.

effects:
  - name: Isometry
    type: transform
    properties:
      uniform scale: false
      scale width: 86.062
      skew: 30

Automate everything

Powerful syntax for problems an interface can’t solve.

files:
  - path: /path/to/image-01.jpg
    id: 1
  - path: /path/to/image-02.jpg
    id: 2

      - name: image 02
