Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of After Effects Guru: Keyframe Assistants.
- If you are a member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files. Now, once you download those exercise files, I'm gonna show you how they're organized. So, here, in my Exercise Files folder, if I double-click to open, you'll see I have a subfolder for each individual chapter, but I want you to note that not every single video in every chapter has an exercise file. Some of them start from scratch, so it doesn't make sense to save an individual exercise file for that video.
Now, the other videos you can feel free to go ahead and open up and follow along. I also have a Sources folder. These After Effects files reference these sources in the Source folder more often than not. So, I encourage you, if you need to move the exercise files around to other drives or anything like that, you wanna make sure to move the exercise files as a whole and then that way, After Effects won't lose any of the original sources that we've referenced in our Sources folder.
Now, if you don't have access to the exercise files, don't sweat it. I encourage you to just follow along with the video with your own individual files. So, let's get started.
