Now, as I always say, there's no right or wrong way, but some ways are better than others in certain situations. So, I'm going to run through all your options for sequencing layers in After Effects. Now I'm going to just extend the timeline a big so you can see we have 13 layers here of this little dog character. And it's a walk sequence and I want to sequence those layers so that I can see them play back over time.
