Photoshop Layers and After Effects

At the root of the partnership of After Effects and Photoshop is the ability to transfer Photoshop layers to separate comp layers in After Effects and then edit the original as desired without having to replace or reimport layers. What may be 20 static layers in Photoshop can become 20 moving layers in After Effects.

This chapter briefly explores that union between the two applications so you can design your projects with this workflow in mind. See Chapters 10-12 for more projects utilizing this concept.
