Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video Essential Graphics panel, part of After Effects CC 2018 Essential Training: Motion Graphics.
- [Instructor] One recent work flow enhancement…added to After Effects is the essential graphics panel.…It allows you to access parameters that may be…spread out inside several different compositions…by gathering them into one easy to reach panel.…Additionally if you work with editors,…the essential graphics panel can also serve…as a powerful way to hand off a composition…as a template for use in premier.…Here in this movie we'll see how to use the panel…to enhance our work flow.…I've got a master composition here called main clusters…and in it we've got these animated triangles…moving around this square but I'm not too thrilled…with the color of the triangles,…and so to change it I need to step into the pre-comp here…called shape cluster.…
And you can see that this is the source for our master.…Inside here I have four shape move pre-comps,…I'll dive into that.…And you can see that we have the triangle…and its animation.…So to change out this triangle color,…we'll select our shape layer, come over here to fill…
