A Quick Tour of Adobe After Effects >  Nesting compositions

Nesting compositions

You can organize your project and create compound effects and animation by nesting compositions. Nesting is the process of using a composition as a layer in another composition. Nesting can help you keep layers organized by grouping them together, and it can save time when you need to apply properties to multiple layers at once.

In this lesson you'll nest Comp 1 into a new composition. This process will allow you to add a new layer behind all the layers in Comp 1 and yet leave that new layer unaffected by the adjustment layer. The result will be that as all the layers in Comp 1 flip backwards, the layer in the new composition will remain in place behind all the other layers.
