Tell me more

There are a few different ways of creating DNA double helixes in After Effects, each of which takes quite a bit of time to perfect and get right.

With the Helix script, all you need to do is select the number of strands you'd like to use and hit go! The script does all the heavy lifting and in moments you'll have a 3D double helix ready to go.

Customise the look and feel

The double helix that's created is made entirely of After Effects shape layers, which means you can completely customise the look and feel of the elements.

The script also creates a control null so you can easily change the colours, the rotation of the helix, the spacing, and the size of the strands in the helix.

Experiment with different colours and styles to produce the look you need.
