Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching and sorting, part of After Effects CS5.5: New Creative Techniques.
New versions of After Effects usually include nice little productivity features…that aren't necessary headlines but are still very useful, points that either…give new functionality or build our own functionality.…For example, After Effects long had a search box in top of the Effects & Presets panel.…Well recently they added a quick search dialog to the top of the Project panel…and also to the top of the Timeline panel.…If you can't see it because Timeline panel is too crowded, just take your…Source name column,…drag it wider, and the search dialog will appear.…Well, CS5.5 has added some additional functionality to this search dialog and to…see it better I am going to go ahead and select my Project panel, press the…Tilde key so it takes up my whole display, and twirl open a few interesting items…like my sources here.…
You can see all these different terms that exist for something like a piece of…source footage. Not just its name, but common fields, types, media durations,…file sizes, paths, etc.…
