Join Mark Christiansen for an in-depth discussion in this video Easily reveal the current composition, part of After Effects CC 2017: New Features.
- [Narrator] This next feature is one…I'm really excited about and if you're an After Effects…nerd like I am, you will be too.…Now, this has existed in After Effects for a long time,…but it's really been hidden and now it's more accessible.…What am I talking about?…The Reveal Composition in Project Command is one…I use all the time in After Effects and if you haven't,…I now recommend you do the same.…So, in the past, the only way to access this command,…which I'm going to show you now, just by right clicking…in the panel menu, Reveal Composition in Project,…was to go to an empty part of the timeline.…
It was just really a hassle.…Like in a case like this where I have lots of layers,…I couldn't even get to it.…So now, not only can I access this in the panel menu,…but I can go down to a layer and it's in there.…Way out here.…Even up here in the Comp Menu,…I can choose Reveal Composition in Project.…Now what does this do?…It simply reveals the composition in the project.…And why, you ask, is this so revolutionary?…
The November 2016 release is just the first of many for After Effects CC 2017. Mark will update the course as soon as new features are released. Check back often for new tutorials.
