Precompose Your Work | The Power of Precomps in After Effects
Precomposing is the most powerful tool in After Effects, and yet a lot of artists don’t use precomps to their full potential. Joey based this video off of a lecture that he gave when he was teaching at Ringling College of Art and Design where he showed just how quickly and easily you can use precomps to build very complex-looking animations that are, in reality, very simple. This technique is really fun to play around with, and can be used in conjunction with other tricks to do some incredibly cool work. Even if you are an advanced After Effects-er you'll probably pick up a new trick or two in this video.
