Preparing to Work

You'll need to import a file and make sure a third-party effect is installed into After Effects in order to complete this chapter's project. The project uses some video footage, provided on the book's DVD, to create the background. To create the 3D channel number 2, you'll use an Illustrator file and the Zaxwerks 3D Invigorator effect. You won't need to import the Illustrator file into your project, since the 3D Invigorator effect prompts you to open the Illustrator file from its actual location on your computer.

To prepare for this project, do the following:


Start with a new project, and save it as Ch14StationID.


Import the file as footage from this chapter's folder on the book's DVD.


Create a new composition named Master using the NTSC DV, 720x480 composition preset, with Duration 5;00 seconds.
