Adobe After Effects Interface
Adobe After Effects interface is little similar to adobe premiere pro. Once you open the application you’ll find a welcome screen….its the same screen which you find in adobe premiere pro where you can create a composition & open projects, get help and support and sync settings
Click close on the welcome window and let’s see the interface of the software
Here you’ll see the tools panel on the top, project panel on the left from your view, composition tab in the center, the timeline is below the composition tab and project panel and you’ll find few useful tabs on the right from your view
You’ll be working in the after effects only with the help of tools and you’ll find those tools in the toolbox at the top, in project panel you can import your files, footage’s,etc.,., and you can access compositions through this panel, in composition tab you can preview the timeline.
The timeline is the place where you actually work and is located at the bottom of the interface, with the remaining panels from the right side you can work on effects, titles, etc.. so, in short, this is the after effects interface.
