Adding the Animated Logo

Next, you'll import a logo into this project and add it to the composition.

  1. Bring the Project panel forward and double-click an empty area in it to open the Import File dialog box.
  2. Navigate to the AECS3_CIB/Lessons/Lesson09/Assets folder. Select the Channel5_logo.aep file, and then click Open.

    When you import a project, After Effects creates a folder for it in the Project panel that contains the composition and its associated media files.

  3. Expand the Channel5_logo.aep folder in the Project panel to list its contents (see Figure 34).
  4. Press the Home key to make sure that the current-time indicator is at the beginning of the time ruler.
  5. Drag the Logo/Channel 5 news composition from the Project panel to the Timeline panel, and place it at the top of the layer stack (see Figure 35).
