Want to animate an element in your Adobe After Effects composition? You may need to optimize the element to be animated. How do you optimize assets so they can be used in your motion graphics project? In this video, author Ian Robinson demonstrates how to make sure your asset is prepared for animation.
- [Instructor] Now when you open this project file,…you'll notice that this is actually a preview…of the After Effects composition we're going to be building…in the next chapter.…I'm showing you this because in that chapter,…we're going to use this cursor hand graphic to fly around…the screen and click on this little plus button…of the user interface that we're going…to be compositing later.…But before we start flying the cursor hand around,…we need to actually optimize this for animation.…So if you're not seeing this cursor hand…in the Libraries panel, first make sure you're in…the Standard layout, you may need to reset it,…and then you can go up under Window…and navigate to Libraries.…
In your Libraries, you want to make sure to choose…the AEG_Market library that we created…earlier in the course.…If you haven't done that, make sure to go back to that video…and download those assets.…Now I'm going to take my cursor hand graphic,…and I'll click on it and drag it all the way over…to the Project panel and let go.…
