User Interface Colors and Time Display in After Fx 6.5

Many programs like Avid or Combustion usually have that serious "let's get down to business" dark grey interface as their default colors. Adobe After Fx's interface is a bit on the lighter site of grey but you can change that in your preferences if you go to Edit > Preferences > User Interface Colors.

Time Display

Depending on what kind of project you are working on Time Display is very important. If you are working in a DV project then SMPTE wouldn't be a problem. But if you find yourself taking on a 16mm or 35mm film then it might be best to display Feet + Frames. After Effects gives you this option in project settings. Go to File > Project Settings
