After Effects :: How To Paste Layers Into A Composition Without It Overlapping

Oct 18, 2013

I'm currently using a free typography template.
The template has 8 compositions and I'm trying to arrange the compositions to play in the order I'd like them to play.
I tried copying/pasting the layers into a pre-existing composition but the text overlaps with the other text layers.
I also tried to pre compose the layers and then copy/paste that into a composition but it also overlaps. Then I tried to drag it to the bottom and/or move the bar on the sequence but it won't appear when i play.

After Effects :: Stretching Length Of Entire Composition Not Layers

Oct 26, 2013

I need to time-stretch a whole comp. It's based on a Video blocks template, but for the purposes of this particular piece, I don't need to stretch the template itself, individual layers/clips/avi files, etc... The entire composition is moving about four times faster than it really needs to. Nothing needs to be individually adjusted; it's an "overall" issue-- I just need to stretch the 15 second time uniformly to one minute. For some reason, I'm having a lot of trouble finding out how to do this. Changing the duration/ time stretch has just created a sixty second video with fifteen seconds at the same speed and then forty-five seconds of black. There HAS to be a simple way to do this...

After Effects :: Pull Up Time Display For Audio And Video Layers In The Composition Panel?

Jan 5, 2014

The best way to explain, is probably just say it shows up when you add "Time Remapping" to a layer.. Is there any way to show a time signature like this, without editing the layer?

After Effects :: Previewing Composition In 3D?

Jan 27, 2014

I am making stereoscopic 3D videos with After Effects. Setting up the rig and rendering work fine, but sometimes the video's convergence is off and I need to make adjustments. I was wondering if there's a way to view the Composition with my 3D glasses before rendering. I'm using an Asus VG248QE monitor with an NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 glasses.

After Effects :: Composition Keeps Moving Position On Its Own?

Jun 18, 2013

I'm scaling and repositioning my composition at several points. A curious thing keeps happening though. My composition is moving it's self in between all my points even when they are the same on both sides. I'll have two keyframes with exactly the same positions at different times and in between those exact same keyframes I'll have the composition moving... I have everything symetrical.

After Effects :: Unable To Loop Composition?

Mar 31, 2013

i'm trying to loop my composition (72 frames) containing a moving object (a walking chicken, refer to printscreen)
i followed tutorial here [URL] ........
In short, i applied Layer > Time > Enable Time Remapping to my newly created Comp 2. Two key frames were created. I moved to the last frame, and then 1 keyframe backwards and created a new keyframe. Then on the very last keyframe i set the time to 0 and then deleted the penultimate frame (which i had just created). And then added Property > LoopOut(Type="Cycle", numKeyframes = 0)  to the layer i want to loop.
however, after applying LoopOut expression, i am no longer able to playback - when i pres Play to preview, the chicken stands still (meanwhile time indicator is moving continuously, indicating that playback is in action).
Thinking that i deleted wrong keyframe, i undid all changes and repeated all steps again but this time i deleted the very last frame and left the penultimate frame (and setting time to 0 ). It did not have any effect - chicken does not move, time indicator is moving/looping in the timeline.
using AE CS6 trial version, windows 7

After Effects :: Holding Last Frame In Composition

Dec 6, 2013

I have read that you can use Time Remapping to hold the last frame of a png sequence so that you can create a pause between transitions, without importing the last frame or anything.
I have tried the technique described here >>URL.... but I think my workflow is in the way.
My entire animation (+/- 600 frames) has been rendered in 3D and imported as one sequence in AFX. I composite my highlights and shadows in a composition and called it Master. Then I made smaller compositions and placed the Master comp inside them and cut it up to size. I placed the separate sequences in a comp called Stage. So now I can just import one single sequence when I render again.
Now I am trying to let the last frame of the smaller sequences to hold for a few frames, before transitioning into the next. The Time Remapping just doesnt seem to work, because it is not holding anything when I move the last frame, it just shows the next part of the master animation.
Is there a way around this or do I need to import every sequence as a unique set?

After Effects :: Composition Turning Invisible While Doing Anything

May 19, 2013

So I Installed After Effects CS6 today and I made a new composition to make an intro for a speech in school.I haven't even tried alot of tools yet but for example when I add a text and change the font size I only see the gray background and the rectangle the text is in. The black and the text in there disappears while changing the font size.Also when I use the rectangle tool to select the text, I can't see what I'm selecting because the same thing happens.

After Effects :: Crashes When Click On Composition

Nov 6, 2013

I'm a fairly experienced user and have bought a template from one of the Royalty Free sites.However, as in the title, AE (CS5 and a CC trial) both crash when I go near some of the compositions. I say 'some' becasue it only seems to be a few that are problematic.I've downloaded the zip again and tried all sorts like renaming the project, emptying the cache, using the Collect Files option to try a new project and downloaded a CC trial but all the same.

After Effects :: Illustrator Files Won't Import As A Composition?

Apr 5, 2014

I'm trying to import some Adobe Illustrator files into After Effects so that I can animate them. As far as I understand, I need to import them as a composition so that the layers will remain separate from each other.
However whenever I try to do this, I go through the whole process- select the file, select composition, click OK,  it does nothing. The file does not appear anywhere in my project, it's as if I haven't done anything.

After Effects :: Camera And Composition Linked Sizes?

Jun 21, 2013

Having trouble working with a large composition and camera work. The size is 11264 x 6928 and when I add in my camera it wants to be comp size. But the size I only want the camera to show is 1920 x 1080.
Is there anyway to edit or unlink the camera and composition sizes so that they are separate? I have tried editing the comp size , adding in a camera at that point and then resizing the comp, but the camera resizes with it!!!
At the moment my work around is having the cameras z position closer to the comp and having this large comp nested within a regular 1920 x 1080. This seems all a bit unnessary though.

I have been using After Effects for quite a while now and it is a great tool. But today, I reinstall my PC because of performance issues. And I straight away install After Effects CC.

After Effects :: Make Animation On Composition Appear In Different Times On Timeline?

Apr 30, 2013

I'm trying to make a mobile app overview and I want to add a little "tapping" animation a whole bunch of times for parts where a button is tapped and so forth. I made an animation of a circle scaling quickly to show the tapping.
The only way I can think of doing this is painstakingly mapping out its position keyframes for the different times in the timeline along with setting hundreds of keyframes for the scale. Is there a way I can just animate it once and then just insert it on various parts of the timeline?

After Effects :: 3D Layer Selection Altering Composition Startpoint

Dec 20, 2013

I have a composition made up of 3 layers. Two text layers and one vector shape as an AI file. I would like the shape to spin on the Y axis (which requires 3d to be selected) - but when I select the 3D checkbox on the shape layer, the entire composition (text included) rotates 90 on the X axis. So effectively selecting 3D makes the whole composition flat so the starting point is altered.

After Effects :: Ghost Image Appearing In Composition Background

Mar 15, 2013

I have an issue of a ghost image appearing in the composition background. I can't figure out how it got there or how to remove it. It's really annoyong as the image also appears in rendered videos.
This only seems to appear when my composition settings is set at 1024 x 576 px, which I must use for projects. If I increase the composition size by 1 pixel, the image disappears, change it back and it reappears.
note, that there is no files in my project and the image still appears.

Photoshop :: Moving Layers In A Composition For...

Apr 6, 2009

I can't move one layer' image to be under/over another one in the final arrangement space because when I do, they lose all the adjustments I had previously made.Background: I didn't move the adjusted photos into the final space in the right way in this, my first venture into CS 4, and know that now. However, when I DO try to move new photos I have adjusted and properly  transferred them via Edit>merged and Edit>paste to the final place and try to move <i>those images</i>, the same thing happens! I need to know how to overlap images for placement.

i would simply like to automatically have the layer shown in the timeline as soon as i select it in the composition window. Sometimes there are so many layer that i will have to look for it.  I know, i can just press p (for example) a few times and it will show.  But this could mess up what i have already opened in this layer.

After Effects :: Live Composition Preview Window / Vector Graphics Are Blurred

Jul 31, 2013

Live Composition Preview Window...Vector graphics are blurred even though I have the 'Continuously Rasterize' button selected. I’m using the latest After Effects and Illustrator. Other compositions within the same ae project are all 100%, then when I started another new composition, the graphics are blurred, making it incredibly difficult to work out what I’m animating as I need to zoom in and it blurs a lot. It is not a RAM issue with the MAC. was going great creating motion graphics, then all of a sudden his happens and I’ve tried everything.

After Effects :: Editable Rectangles Of Still Photos In Composition Panel Suddenly Stopped Showing Up

Feb 4, 2014

I am relatively new to After Effects CC and am using it to create a stop motion film with a large amount of photos.Usually, when importing the individual images into my composition panel, a sequence of editable rectangles appears in the composition panel allowing me to edit the frame length of the still photos.
After around 950 imported images, the little rectangles suddenly stopped showing up. But when looking at a preview of the project, it's as if the photos are in there, in the sequence they should be. I'm just unable to edit them like the previous ones with rectangles showing.
The area of issue is where you see the descending sequence of boxes in the comp panel. The red tracking bar is there to show that there are still photos continuing the sequence.

Photoshop :: How To Select Locked Layer When Too Many Layers Overlapping

Sep 6, 2013

How to select a locked layer when you have too many layers overlapping?
I know I can select all the layers, lock them and unlock them. But I can't lock/unlock all layers when some layers are hidden. I'll have to dig in to unhide those layers. But then I don't want to unhide all layers, because it will make changes to my design that I wouldn't know.
Is there a smart way to find/select the lock layer?

Illustrator :: Paths From Bottom Layer Overlapping Layers Above?

Nov 7, 2013

I have just finished designing my characters. Now I have to create my background. I figured to do this, I would simply have to create my background and hide the layers above so I can see what I'm doing. However the few lines that I've created in my background are overlaping the characters, how can I resolve this?
Also after doing a brush or creating a path in general, how do i I deselect it (instead of having to bring out the selection tool and clicking anywhere on the screen)
I jut remembered something else, if i want to select an object but the selection rectangle covers the perimeter of another object, how do I avoid selecting the other object aswell?

GIMP :: Cut And Paste Various Layers?

Feb 10, 2013

It is my first time using Gimp and although i have figured everything i needed by myself, but i have a doubt, well im adapting a bunch of sprite work from one rpg maker engine (unknown name) to RPG Maker VX ACE, i have no problem there , the thing is that now i have 3 images that are exactly the same except from the color scheme and i was wondering if it is possible the put all them on a canvas and cut and paste the 3 layers at the same time on another canvas, something like this:

3 - - - - - - - * - -
2 - - - - - - - * - -
1 - - - - - - - * - -


3 I I I I * I I I I I
2 I I I I * I I I I I
1 I I I I * I I I I I

And after that i "pell off" each layer and get 3 pictures.

3 I I I I * I I I I I _ 2 I I I I * I I I I I _ 1 I I I I * I I I I I
