    An easy way to apply the transform properties of one object to another in After Effects (like the compass to the letter “I” in the tutorial) is by

    • A.

      Parenting

    • B.

      Binding

    • C.

      Copying the transform keyframes

    Layered documents such as Adobe Illustrator files are usually imported into AE as

    • A.

      Separate compositions

    • B.

      Merged layers

    • C.

      Folders with layers

    • D.

      Layered compositions

    Correct Answer
    A. Separate compositions
    Explanation
    When importing layered documents such as Adobe Illustrator files into After Effects (AE), they are typically imported as separate compositions. This means that each layer in the Illustrator file will be imported as an individual composition in AE, allowing for easier manipulation and organization of the various elements. By importing the layers as separate compositions, it provides more flexibility and control over the individual elements within the file.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What is NOT true about compositions?

    • A.

      They can contain other compositions

    • B.

      They can consist of multiple layers

    • C.

      They must have more than one layer

    • D.

      They can contain text layers

    Correct Answer
    C. They must have more than one layer
    Explanation
    Compositions do not necessarily have to have more than one layer. Compositions can consist of multiple layers, which can include other compositions and text layers. The statement that they must have more than one layer is incorrect because a composition can be made up of just one layer.

    The process of nesting existing layers into a compostion is called

    • A.

      Precomposing

    • B.

      Compositing

    • C.

      Layering

    • D.

      Ordering

    Correct Answer
    A. Precomposing
    Explanation
    Precomposing is the process of combining multiple layers into a single composition within After Effects. This allows for easier management and manipulation of complex compositions by treating the precomposed layers as a single entity. It is a useful technique when working with nested compositions or when applying effects and transformations to multiple layers simultaneously. Compositing refers to the process of combining visual elements from different sources into a single image or sequence. Layering refers to arranging multiple layers on top of each other to create a composite image. Ordering refers to the arrangement of layers in a specific sequence within a composition.

    The process of creating a finished video through AE is called

    • A.

      Exporting

    • B.

      Rendering

    • C.

      Compositing

    • D.

      Merging

    Correct Answer
    B. Rendering
    Explanation
    Rendering is the correct answer because it refers to the process of creating the final video output from After Effects (AE). When a project is rendered, AE processes all the effects, animations, and edits to generate a high-quality video file. This includes rendering all the layers, effects, and transitions to create the finished product. The rendered video can then be exported and used for various purposes, such as sharing online or further editing in other software. Compositing, merging, and exporting are all related processes, but specifically, rendering is the term used for the final output creation in AE.

    Adobe Illustrator files produce vector-based images. They are useful for many type of media because

    • A.

      They are Adobe files

    • B.

      They can be scaled up or down without loss of quality

    • C.

      They stay the same size regardless of output media

    • D.

      They cannot be scaled without distortion

    Correct Answer
    B. They can be scaled up or down without loss of quality
    Explanation
    Adobe Illustrator files produce vector-based images, which means that the images are created using mathematical equations rather than pixels. This allows the images to be scaled up or down without any loss of quality. Unlike raster images, which are made up of pixels and can become pixelated or blurry when scaled, vector-based images maintain their sharpness and clarity at any size. This makes Adobe Illustrator files ideal for various types of media, as they can be easily resized without compromising the image quality.
