Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the project in After Effects, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.

I have After Effects CS6 open right now.…It's just an empty project, there is nothing in it.…We can use this to import background footage and get started.…As we discussed, image sequences are often used in visual effects work, and we are going…to bring in our first image sequence.…When we work with sequences, it is important to make sure we pay attention to the resolution,…the frames per second, and the duration.…We can get started by going up to File > Import > File.…And even though image sequence is composed of many individual files, we could bring those…in as a single unit in After Effects.…
I want to navigate to my Footage folder and within that folder is a folder called WideSpeaker,…in this sort of background, image sequence was converted from the original video.…When you are working with the image sequence, all you have to do is to click on the very…first frame of the sequence, in this case 000.png.…Once you click on the very first one, you will see that in the lower left-hand corner…
