Chapter 12. More Layer Techniques

Chapter 12. More Layer Techniques

This chapter tackles a handful of techniques. First, you'll get to meet two layer switches that influence how After Effects deals with the motion between frames: Frame Blending and Motion Blur. Once you've taken care of the remaining switches in the Switches panel of the Time Layout window, you'll be ready to take a closer look at its alter ego, the Modes panel. In the Modes panel, you'll discover a long list of ways to blend a layer with the underlying layers, and expand your repertoire of compositing tools. You'll also find out what the mysterious "T" option really stands for, and more importantly, how to use it. Finally, you'll complete your tour of the Modes panel by learning yet another compositing option, Track Mattes.
