I wanted to take this movie to introduce this chapter because it's going to be a little different than the others. We've covered some great stuff, and it's been a little intense and a lot to take in, and there's going to be even more to take in as some of After Effects' most powerful and exciting features will be covered in the chapters ahead. So, in this chapter were going to take a little break from the tough stuff and just recharge. We're going to get better with After Effects, more efficient and comfortable, so you feel in control of this program.
