Do the Impossible with the Tapered Stroke Preset.

If you've ever needed a tapered stroke in After Effects you know that it was impossible without buying a fancy plugin, until now.

Jake Bartlett (School of Motion Contributor and Skillshare Instructor) put together this easy to use preset for After Effects that gives you full control over a tapered stroke with the click of a button, and we're giving it to you for free. Just sign in at the bottom of this page to download the preset and you'll be ready to taper those strokes!

If you're big into expressions you'll definitely want to see how this preset works. Check out how Jake built the tapered stroke rig starting in our two part series.
