Chapter 1. After Effects: The Big Picture > Grouping Related Windows

Grouping Related Windows

The Time Layout window and Composition window show you a composition in two contexts: time and space, respectively. In the "family" of windows, they are considered to be the "parent" windows of a composition. The Layer and Effect Controls windows are considered the "children" windows, indicating their relationship to a particular composition.

To avoid confusion and screen clutter, After Effects permits you to close related window groups automatically.
