You will notice that each video panel has a grid of 50x50 pixels which exactly matches the floor, and this grid is applied on top of the video and then a block dissolve transition brings on the video. Because we're using a grid structure, we'll create each pre-comp as a square pixel comp, even though the videos inside the comps will be non-square pixels.

So let's get started with the first video panel which is of the skater. I will select the MyPrecomps folder again and then select Composition > New Composition. I will call this comp Skater. And for the size, I'd like to make it a multiple of 50 pixels. The closest I can get to with the 720x486 video is a square pixel size of 650x450. Just like the other pre-comps, this will also be a square pixel com...
