After Effects CS3 Level 2: Shy layers and introducing duplicating keyframes across time

By Jerry Leer

Talented Pixie is a unique production house producing excellent e-learning tutorials for the creative and education industry. Concentrating on Quark, Apple and Adobe products the company has produced over 400 tutorials and is continuing to develop more daily.

Each software subject has been divided up into 5-10 minute videos allowing people to access the training quickly and easily: dispensing of the need for laborious manuals. The high quality sound and graphics makes them a joy to watch.

In this training video, host Jerry Leer discusses Shy layers and introducing duplicating keyframes across time. When you start building your projects out, you soon find out that your timeline is full of layers, which causes a lot of scrolling. A fix for this is to make the layers shy, which is sort of the opposite of turning the layers on and off. He details some of the solutions for the clutter, and shows the shy layer button, and how to turn it on.
