Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Improving the video timing, part of After Effects Apprentice 16: Creating a Medical Opening Title.
Another very minor detail that bothered me, because I noticed these things, …is just the timing of when some of these videos come on and off.…For example, this frame on the right, where the nurse is taking the blood pressure of a patient.…For a good deal of the time that she comes on screen, we don't get a very…attractive look of her, we just see her back instead of seeing more of her face…and her actually putting the cuff on the patient.…So I think I'm going to slide the timing of that video so we see her in a more…attractive light when she comes on screen.…I've moved it to a representative frame shortly after she comes on screen and…I'm going to slide her layer bar to change her timing so that's she's starting…to turn forward as she comes on the screen. Let's see how that looks.…
We'll pull back, even though in that pull back, I wouldn't mind her being a…little further around like that.…Let's make sure I've not hurt my timing later on in this composition.…I want to make sure I don't run out of video while her frame is still on screen…
