Opening AEP files

Did your computer fail to open an AEP file? We explain what AEP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your AEP files.

What is an AEP file?

The .aep file extension is most commonly associated with the Adobe After Effects software application. This software creates motion picture graphics and visual effects. The EP files contain the project files created with the After Effects software.

The .aep file extension is also used for Homeworld game files, Alphacam wire EDM post files, ArcExplorer project files and Activ E-Book project files.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
