Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Building the base compositions, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
Before you start on any project, you should go ahead and create the…compositions that you'll need to create all of the different graphics.…So we'll do this relatively quickly and painlessly just by utilizing some…excellent features inside of After Effects.…Let's get started by double-clicking in the Project panel.…In your file browser, navigate to your Exercise Files folder.…And there, go to the Footage folder and navigate to your Video folder.…Let's select all three video clips by clicking one and then Shift+clicking on…the last one. We can import our video files as footage,…and then go ahead and click Open. Now, since we imported all three of these…video files at once, After Effects is automatically going to have all three…selected in the Project panel. So it's easy enough to create three…compositions. Just click and drag directly on a…QuickTime file down to your Composition button.…
When you let go, you'll get a new comp window that pops up.…Make sure to choose Multiple Compositions and then click OK.…
