Adobe After Effects CS4: Optimize the Pipeline

Chapter Description

This chapter examines how image data flows through an After Effects project in detail. That may not sound gripping until you realize how much your creativity is hampered by remaining ignorant of this stuff.


You’ve reached the end of Section I (assuming you’re reading this book linearly, that is) and should now have a firm grasp on getting the most out of the After Effects workflow. Now it’s time to focus more specifically on the art of visual effects. Section II, “Effects Compositing Essentials,” will teach you the techniques, and Section III, “Creative Explorations,” will show you how they work in specific effects situations.

Now comes the fun part.
