Look at these regular verbs conjugated in the Futur antérieur:
J'aurai aimé la vie.I will have loved life.
Tu auras gagné après tout.You will have won after all.
Il aura fini son projet à temps.He will have finished his project on time.
Nous aurons rempli ces documents avant la fermeture.We'll have filled in these documents before closing time.
Vous aurez entendu tellement de versions différentes!You will have heard so many different versions!
Ils auront perdu finalement.They will have lost in the end.
The Futur antérieur is formed on the same model as the Passé Composé, except avoir is here conjugated in the Futur.
For -ER verbs, you form the past participle by replacing the -er ending with -é.
For -IR verbs, you form the past participle by replacing the -ir ending with -i.
For -DRE verbs, you form the past participle by replacing the -dre ending with -du.
Note: the exceptions of verbs with être instead of avoir are the same as in the Passé Composé.
