Discover how to manipulate time in After Effects. Author Chris Meyer shows how to stop, slow, and speed up footage, and how to combine these techniques with nested compositions, expressions, and the Graph Editor. Along the way, he reveals several important yet somewhat hidden functions, such as the advanced composition setting that ensures predictable stop motion, the Frame Mix and Pixel Motion modes of the Frame Blending switch, and the Time Remap parameter.

Hi! I am Chris Meyer of Crish Design, and welcome to the After Effects Apprentice lesson on time games. In this short fun course we're going to give you a few ideas and give you a few techniques on how you can manipulate time. We're going to show you two different ways to create smoother slow motion. We're going to show you how to reliably create stop motion, including freeze frames, and we're going to show you how to keyframe time, how to make time speed up, slow down, even run backwards depending on what do you need for a particular project. We have a Quizzler where you need to combine something you learned in this lesson with something you learned in the previous lesson on expressions, and we have a couple of Idea Corners to hopefully give you some further inspiration.
I hope these tips and knowledge add to your bag of tricks and that you have lot of fun. So, as always, let's dive in.
