When dealing with audio in After Effects you should also be aware that there's actually an Audio category of effects. If I go to Effects & Presets panel and open up Audio, you'll see we actually have a series of effects here. These are actually pretty good quality effects, but again, because of After Effects' limited audio capabilities, this may or may not be the best place to use these here. But in an absolute pinch it does help to have things like Reverb and like Parametric EQ if you want to bring out highs and lows of different types of footage. There is also a few special effects like Backwards, for example.
If I apply Backwards to this layer and preview this with the Period key on numeric keypad, it sounds pretty cool. (Music playing) So, just like the equivalent of playing the clip backwards, which actually with this clip it sounds really cool. I am going to apply Reverb to this. This is one of the more common effects. So, if you have some audio like maybe a voiceover that was recorded in somebody's home studio or something like, and you need to put that audio inside like a parking garage, like somebody is talking in the parking garage or something like that, you may need to add Reverb to make it seem a little bit thicker and more full.
I'll actually delete Backwards, and then we'll preview this. = (Music playing) So, a little bit more full and lush because of the Reverb. So, it's beyond the scope of this training series to go into audio effects and what these all do, but just be aware if you do need some extra audio sweetening, these audio effects are here for you.
