Quick Start Tutorial

The basic usage in After Effects is the same as in the Premiere Pro version. The selected layers in a composition are arranged in order from the top.  However, the way to create each screen is different from Pr. In Pr, you can use Crop effect to crop the screen, and if you want to change the size or position of the image, you can use the Transform effect.
