Chapter 1. The Effects Toolset > Preparing Your Workspace

Preparing Your Workspace

For better or worse, the After Effects 6.5 user interface—like all of the versions that preceded it—is heavily based on palettes and menus. When you open After Effects for the first time, the interface itself doesn't tell you a whole lot about how to work with the program (Figure 1.1); you see an empty Project window and a few palettes (Tools, Info, Audio, Time Controls, and Effects and Presets, to be precise).

Figure 1.1. The default After Effects user interface implies little, if anything, about how you use it.
