you open here so you can click here so let’s create a new project I’m going to
click here for our project at CC 2019 guys you see in adobe after effects this is this
user interface is organized into different areas which is called panels
there are different types of panels the left side you see this is the project
panel this is the composition panel and at the bottom is this is the timeline
panel it is just like a Premiere Pro if you are familiar with premiere software
so this is just like a premiere workspace and here in the project panel we can
access our media assets and import media files to create a project so import media
files it can be images video files for your files and PSD files illustrator
files targa sequence which is created animation in Autodesk Maya and blender
and different 3d software’s so you can import that sequence animation
sequence in project panel and the composition panel is used to preview our
project we created downside there is a timeline panel in the timeline panel we
can we can arrange and edit our media files media assets here a downside
that’s import media Adobe After Effects CC 2019. how
to import media for use in a project so we just go to file and here is the
option import and we go to file and the short key is control “I” we can import
multiple files we can import from libraries the assets will be saving
libraries and we can import our Adobe Premiere Pro project and upload the
after-effects as well so here I’m just going to import some video files so I’m
just going to click here and in this folder I have lots of files like
illustrator files PNG files video files and Photoshop file so one by one I’m just
going to create import for these files these assets in my project pannell so
first I can click these footages and I’m just going to import as a
footage and import this file another way to import our media assets
to click double-click here the project panel double click an empty area of the
project panel just above click here and this import dialog box will open – so
there are two ways we can import from file and double click the project panel see my assets let’s import jpg file so I
have two JPEG files here so to show you this if you want to import multiple
files just click press ctrl in the keyboard now as you see two JPEG files
and here if I click the files and upside you see in the project panel
it shows the full resolution the framerate and the codec used here this
is a video file and that your back file size here ok now there is another way
these just simply I import some photoshop file so you just go to next
row and select this file and guys you see in this dialog box of import file we
have an option here footage composition within layer or composition so if you
want to I just select this option composition retain layers because if
your PSD files your Photoshop files have different layers or or you want to use
these layers in in After Effects so you create and you want this file as a
separate composition so you select this option so I just click here composition
written layer size and hit import now guys you see this dialog box is open you
can select here you can select the file footage so only one
nature will open and if you select composition this is the composition make
a composition and if you select the composition retain layers so you have
options your options so you wanted a edit layer styles if you select this so
you can edit separate layers in your timeline and if you want to merge layers
so you you didn’t work any layer this is only one . i
select this and it layer styles so hit OK and guys you see here downside the
separate composition is created which is which have separate layers so I just
double click here and here you see in this composition a double click here all
layers of Photoshop is imported in my timeline so you see these layers I
created in Photoshop so I just about quick you see here you can change this file separately same
way we can import our illustrator file so we have lots of layers in Illustrator
at now guys then then organize our composition so I’m just going to add
some files so I import this file and here just drag and drop this file from
my project panel in the timeline and I’m going to create a composition
from this file so just drag and drop down side in the project panel to create
a composition this icon conversation icon and guys you see here in the timeline
I’m going to change the composition name so I just go and right click here and
rename this composition com1 and I’m going to change the file name as well
learning this is the video file and here you see downside this is then we add
different files and a timeline panel this is call layer in in our composition
so this only one layer in is available here we can change the layer color from
here there’s like this electric orange different just right click here this
side just box and we can change the color of the layer and we can I’m just
going to import another there and I just drag and drop just above this
another layer so guys we can change the position of the layers just like this we vertically so Leone’s our stack one on
the top of the other so we can change the position of the layer so we can
change another layer I just right click here and I just add a
new layer of tags just right here tax you didn’t see because the video file is
above so I just drag and drop over the text file and this is the file we can
move this files here guys you see this one this is called layer handles we can
reduce the size of the layer scaling and scale out by using this layer handles
these dots will follow all their handles so guys you see there are three layers
three layers available here in art online and we can switch it off by here
the option is we can hide the layer we can lock the layers and guys you see
these color bars on the right hand side of the timeline panel indicates how long
the layer is displayed in the composition so so we can change how long
a layer is played by changing the length of the color bar so here we just click
and drag move the cursor from the right hand
right inside and there and click and drag back towards the left server
use the duration and size of them there so let’s play and hear this local file
is available just want to delete this okay just double click here to edit the
text again I’m going to reduce the size of
the this layer so I’m going to select this file this layer just press shift
and just accurately select this move left to like drag the bar towards left
so here you see there are two layers number one and a bucket and this is the
time indicator now guys could start our perfects project so for this we will
need to build our graphic in composition so there are two ways to create a
composition first you will just go to menu bar and here the option available
new composition and here you create a new composition the short key is control
and and you can also create here and the composition panel you can create
composition from here and directly as well
I just under going to click here so now guys you see in composition this dialog
box will open first of all what is composition composition is just a
container that stores or video files audio files tax it may be shapes
whatever your work it depends on your task so we can create more than one
compositions in one project so let’s create a composition here first you are
just going to select the composition name so I’m just going to write here after effects cc 2019 if this is the basic settings for
composition so here I’m just click here on the drop down menu and here are lots
of building compositions and increased sets available depend on your task the
different resolution and frame rates so you can select a different depend on
your work there are and es each standard video standard and H.264 and
different standard and you can customize your composition width and height by is
Directly right here in the number like 720 by 576 and let’s say 1920 by 1080 height
and I’m just going to lock this aspect ratio pixel aspect ratio and here the
framerate you can change the frame rate from here so frame rate by default is 30
frame rate per second and you can change the resolution of the file the playback
resolution so depend on your computer if your computer is fast and it’s highly
configured so you select full playback resolution or you can i select mostly
third resolution because my system is not too fast so and here the start time
code and the duration of the composition duration means well how long your
project is ten-second the animation or ten-second your whole compositions
depend on your work this 10 second or let’s say I change it to 30 seconds 45
seconds or 1 minute on depends you know your your tasks so I just select the 30
seconds and here just like by default the compositions are
black so you can change the competition color from here as well and hit okay
this is the basic user interface and if you are a beginners so these settings
are okay for you and I hate okay to create a composition is so let’s create
a composition now guys you see this new composition is created and in the
project panel you will see this icon which is created here you can see easily
here and you can change the composition name from here as well in the project
panel this right click here and here you see I just double click here in the
project panel to maximize to show you this is the composition settings of show the composition then video information here and now guys you can another method is
you can create a composition from your video files from your footage as well so
I’m just going to delete this composition and here
new composition I just click here new composition from footage so I’m going to
select one of your footage from my raw video files I just download it from some
websites so I just click here and import this footage and now guys you see this new
composition is created from my footage and it is automatically matching match
the footage settings exactly so here another I just I’m just going to import
another video file to show you I’m just going to import this going to create a
new composition and now guys in this video file here I’m just going to drag
this footage onto the new composition icon here down side you see in the

automatically so this this is another composition is created here and you see
in the timeline panel the second composition and it is the
first composition I’m just going to change right the name here this is the

composition and your composition write the name composition 3 and here it is
the third competition you get you see here and the third composition but there
is no video files at the composition so as it’s as you say that composition
consists of different video files audio files and text files I’m going to add
some text to show you the basic animation basic text animation in After
Effects CC 2019 for begnners is very according to create simple text animation
and intros in After Effects so after importing media files and we can add
some text and shapes layers within the after effects cc 2019 software so at the top of

the layer panel you see this triangle i’m just going to click here to show you
the further properties here by default there are properties we have we have
different parameters to change their numbers or to set their position or
scale for animation so for this we need your key frames so keyframe is just a
location on a timeline in the insert some dots you can say this is the
location in a timeline which marks the beginning and ending of transition. I’m just going
to show you for example this is the scale one keyframe this is a keyframe in the
beginning and end up the transition this 10 second after six second okay I’m just
going to increase the value so this is called the keyframes simply it is the
beginning or end of the transition so here you can select this stopwatch
