Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Building a composition, part of Practical Motion Background Workshop.
- [Instructor] Let's build out our first composition.…We've got a lot of different choices here for footage,…so let's browse and get familiar.…You'll see that the organization came across,…so double-clicking on a subclip…will let you drag through and quickly…preview that footage in After Effects.…You might notice that the quality…temporarily drops if you're using Adaptive Resolution.…That's controlled right here,…and you'll notice with Adaptive Resolution,…as you drag through, the quality will lower…to give you more real-time performance…within After Effects.…
Now, there are many different options here,…but I think I'm going to work here…with these Blue Spins.…If I click and drag through,…I can quickly see the footage.…That looks pretty good.…Now, looking at my original frame rate,…I see that it's 29.97.…After Effects will allow you to work…at any frame rate, so you could easily…convert this to a new frame rate…if you had a different output requirement.…Because these looping backgrounds…are also not really needing to be timed…
