In this chapter, we’re going to discuss CC libraries…and their addition to After Affects.…Now, these have been available in programs…such as Illustrator and Photoshop in their CC 2014 versions,…but libraries are new to the video apps…in their CC 2015 versions.…CC libraries in general are a great concept.…It’s a way to share assets, not just between applications,…but also between different users.…You can have a client, or a freelancer, or designer,…create for you folders of different items…and then share them with you without the need…to send you an email, do it through dropbox, etc.…
However, this is a version 1.0 implementation…in After Effects, and there are a ton of gotcha’s.…Therefore, I’m going to be spending a lot of time…warning you about what you can and cannot do…in this version of After Effects.…The first disappointment is that you cannot add anything…to your library’s panel inside After Effects CC 2015,…also known as the 13.5 release.…Hope that changes in the future,…expect it to change in the future, not happening now.…
