Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Framing the hero, part of After Effects Apprentice: 16 Creating a Medical Opening Title.
I'm going to continue on with the Final Comp and HERO +Title that I've created so far.…If you're just jumping in at this point in the course and you have access to the…exercise files, go into Intermediate Comps and you can use 08a_Title Animated…and 08b_Hero Precomp Placed, and that will catch up to where I am.…These will look slightly different than the ones I've built so far, because I've…made some different choices for parameters, etcetera, but we're trying to get…you to focus on concepts rather than doing exactly what I do.…Now back in this Final Comp, as my placeholders pan by and my HERO video comes…into the scene, I remember that I was going to frame this HERO video.…
It does look a bit on the naked side hanging out by itself with nothing around it, …just a piece of video hanging in space.…So to do that, I'm going to back to my Hero +Title Comp, and then open up its composition settings.…Shortcut is Command key on Mac, Ctrl key on Windows.…I had made my placeholders 140 pixels larger in both dimensions to leave room for the frame.…
