  • Drag footage onto the new composition icon in the bottom of the Project panel to automatically place it in a new composition, matching the footage settings exactly.
  • Compositions can contain layers generated within After Effects and layers from external files such as files from Illustrator or Photoshop.
  • Compositions are composed of a stack of layers in the Timeline panel.
  • Layers can be moved vertically to change appearance in the stack, and horizontally to change the appearance of layers over time.
