Join Angie Taylor for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a rough layout, part of After Effects: Kinetic Typography Techniques (2011).
So in this movie, we're going to have a look at how to create your rough layout in …Photoshop or some ideas of how you can make it a bit easier. …We're in 05LayoutStart.psd, which you can find in your Project Files folder, in the …sub folder names Photoshop Files. And here I have a document that's the …size that I want the final screen to be. And all of my text appears within that document. …Now, I may not want all of the text up here. …I may want to have 1 screen for each line of text.…
And indeed, that's what I want to do here. …So, what I need to do is I need to figure out how many scrrens I need. …So I've got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11. …So, I really need 12 screens. So, one way of being able to make sure I …have enough space is to go into image, canvas size, And what we need to do is we …need to have three times the width and four times the depth, if you like. …So what I'm going to do is anchor it from the top, and what I'm going to do is choose percent.…
And what we're going to do is have four across and three down. …
