Creating a Work Template For After Fx

One of the main keys to making After Effects work in you favor is organization. It is a good idea to create a work template that you will use over and over again every time you begin a project.

First create a folder on your Desktop and call it "AE Setup" (or a name that better fits your work flow. I called mine AE Focus). Within this folder make other folders you may need to organize any project. Here is what my folder looks like:

Now head into After Effects and do the same thing. Save your After Effects file as AE Template into your AE Setup folder then take a moment to think of all the time you'll be saving since don't have to do that again.

Now when you begin a project in Adobe After Fx open your AE Template file and immediately go to "Save As", re-title your project, and save it into your AE Setup folder.
