Lesson 3. Animated L-Train Logo > Setting up the project

Setting up the project

Start the project by importing all the source files that you need to complete the logo.

  1. Choose File > Import > Footage Files or press Ctrl+Alt+I (Windows) or Command+Option+I (Mac OS). Then select the Circle.ai file in the 03Lesson folder, and click Open.

  2. Continue by selecting and importing the following files: Audio.mov, Logo.ai, Prod.ai, and Train.mov.

  3. When you are finished importing the files, click Done.

  4. Next, import the Illustrator file as a composition: choose File > Import > Illustrator As Comp, select Scr_L.ai, and click Open.

    You should now have a total of seven items in the Project window, even though you imported only six items. When you imported the Scr_L.ai file as a comp, After Effects first added the source file layers in a folder, and then created the composition from the layers.

    To make the composition easier to identify, rename it.

  5. Select the Scr_L.ai composition in the Project window, press Enter or Return, type Script L Comp to rename it, and press Enter or Return again.
