    • C.

    • D.

      Composition

    Correct Answer
    D. Composition
    Explanation
    A composition is the correct term used to describe an After Effects work-in-progress. In After Effects, a composition refers to a project file where all the elements such as footage, effects, and animations are combined and arranged on a timeline. It is the main workspace where the user can manipulate and edit the visual elements to create the desired final output.

  • 9. 

    Items or objects such as video or audio files imported into After Effect are called

    • A.

      Footage items

      Timelines

    • C.

      Projects

    • D.

      Compositions

    Correct Answer
    A. Footage items
    Explanation
    In After Effects, items or objects such as video or audio files that are imported are referred to as "footage items". These footage items can be edited, manipulated, and arranged within compositions to create the desired visual effects or motion graphics. Timelines represent the sequence of events or keyframes within a composition, projects refer to the overall files or folders containing multiple compositions and assets, and compositions are the individual scenes or visual elements within a project. However, in this context, the correct term for imported items is "footage items".

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Very much like Photoshop, After Effects items in a compostion are ordered into

    • A.

      Layers

    • B.

      Groups

    • C.

      Timelines

    • D.

      Objects

    Correct Answer
    A. Layers
    Explanation
    After Effects, like Photoshop, organizes items in a composition into layers. Layers allow for individual control and manipulation of different elements within the composition. Each layer can contain various objects, such as images, videos, or effects, and can be arranged in a specific order to create the desired visual outcome. By using layers, users can easily manage and modify different elements of their composition separately, providing flexibility and control over the final result.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    You can add an effect to a layer by

    • A.

      Dragging the effect from the effect panel onto the layer in the composition

    • B.

      Right-clicking on the layer and adding the effect

    • C.

      Dragging the effect onto the footage item in the project panel

    • D.

      Right-clicking on the effect and choosing the layer

    Correct Answer
    A. Dragging the effect from the effect panel onto the layer in the composition
    Explanation
    To add an effect to a layer in Adobe After Effects, you can drag the effect from the effect panel onto the layer in the composition. This action allows you to directly apply the effect to the specific layer you want to modify. By dragging the effect onto the layer, you can easily customize and adjust the effect's settings to achieve the desired visual result.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      Name

      Properties

    • C.

      Location

    • D.

      Organization on the timeline

    Correct Answer
    B. Properties
    Explanation
    Effects applied to a layer can be adjusted by changing their properties. This means that the various attributes and settings of an effect, such as its intensity, duration, or style, can be modified by accessing and editing its properties. By adjusting these properties, the visual or audio effect can be customized to achieve the desired result.

    • A.

      Keyframes

    • B.

      Footage items

    • C.

      Groups

    • D.

      Stop watches

    Correct Answer
    A. Keyframes
    Explanation
    Keyframes are used to control the change in an effect over time. They allow for precise control of the animation or transformation of an element by specifying specific points in time where a change should occur. By setting keyframes at different intervals, one can create smooth transitions and animations. Keyframes are commonly used in animation software and video editing to control the movement, position, and appearance of objects or effects. They provide a way to define the desired behavior and timing of an effect, making them an essential tool for creating dynamic and visually appealing animations.

    Correct Answer
    A. Effects presets
    Explanation
    Effects presets are a convenient way to add prekeyframed effects to a composition. They allow users to save and apply a combination of effect settings to multiple layers or compositions with just a few clicks. By using effects presets, users can easily apply complex effects without manually adjusting keyframes or creating new keyframes for each parameter. This saves time and effort in the editing process, making it a preferred method for adding prekeyframed effects.

This tool provides various options and features that can be used to adjust the timing and interpolation of keyframes, resulting in smoother and more natural animations. By utilizing the Keyframe Assistant, animators can create more realistic and visually appealing motion in their animations.

    Correct Answer
    A. RAM preview
    Explanation
    The correct answer is RAM preview. RAM preview is a feature in AE that allows you to preview your composition in real-time by storing frames in the computer's RAM. This helps to ensure smooth playback and accurate representation of the final output. It is the best way to preview your finished composition as it provides a more accurate representation compared to other methods like timeline preview or scrubbing the timeline. Layer viewing, on the other hand, refers to the ability to view individual layers within a composition.
