We now are ready to move onto After Effects.…So in project 1 we set the lights and camera to render out the spyglass.…We also set up mental ray render passes to split out that render into multiple render…pass layers within a layered PSD image sequence.…So we are going to bring those renders into After Effects and also bring in the original…footage that was shot with the actress.…Before you do that in After Effects, though, I want to check a few things.…One we want to make sure we are working in new project.…So I am going to go to File > New > New Project.…I am not going to save the old one, and then also I want to check to see where the settings…are in terms of how the timeline is going to work.…
Now since we are working with Image Sequences, it's often useful to not work in Time code,…but to work in Frames. I'll show you where that is.…If you go up to File > Project Settings, under Time Display Style, the option of Time code--…which is default--and also Frames.…Frames are much easier to work with in this situation.…
