In this course, Chris and Trish Meyer share two of the core secrets required to become an efficient After Effects user: understanding the render order (the internal order of operations After Effects uses when calculating masks, effects, transformation, track mattes, and layer styles) and the use of multiple compositions where a composition may be nested into one or more other comps. This makes it easier to group layers, efficiently re-use a common element to quickly accommodate client changes, pan around large composites of multiple layers, and solve render order issues. Exercise files are included with the course.
The After Effects Apprentice video lessons were created by Trish and Chris Meyer and are designed to be used on their own or as a companion to their acclaimed book, After Effects Apprentice.
* Grouping layers by nesting and pre-composing * Identifying and solving render order issues * Navigating composition hierarchies * Editing a precomp while viewing the result in another composition * Preserving the frame rate of a nested composition
