Speed up your workflow in After Effects

Decent organisation when you’re working in After Effects is important for a number of reasons. For a start, if you have to hand work over to a client or colleague, it’s best not to be known as ‘the one with messy projects’. Similarly, have you ever received project files from other people, only to find you have to organise things in a way you can understand? Perhaps most importantly, when revisiting your own projects months later, do waste time trying to figure out your own mess?

A few minutes’ work now can save hours in the future, both for yourself and for others. Here’s a simple structure to follow that will help you keep yourself organised.
