Can I Import Figma to After Effects?

Figma is a popular visual design tool used by many professionals in the design industry. It’s a vector-based design tool that allows you to easily create and manipulate shapes, colors, and typography. It’s great for creating illustrations, logos, and other forms of graphic design.

After Effects is a powerful software used by video editors, motion graphics artists and animators to create amazing visuals for film, television and web. It’s capable of creating stunning 3D animation and effects with its powerful compositing tools.

The question of whether or not you can import Figma into After Effects has been asked by many people in the past.

The answer is yes – you can import a Figma file into After Effects. In order to do this, you need to export the Figma file as an Adobe Illustrator (AI) file or as a PDF document. If you choose to export it as an AI file, make sure that all your layers are unlocked so that After Effects can access them. Once your Figma file is exported, open After Effects and go to File > Import > File and select the AI or PDF document from your computer.

When importing the document into After Effects, make sure to choose ‘Import as Composition’ so that all the layers are kept intact with their original names. This will help you keep track of them better when manipulating them in After Effects later on. You can then start working with the imported Figma layers just like any other layer in After Effects.


In conclusion, it is possible to import your Figma files into After Effects by exporting it as an Adobe Illustrator (AI) or PDF document first so that all layers remain intact when they are imported into After Effects. Once imported, you can manipulate the layers just like any other layer within After Effects.
