The Library panel provides you with a prebuilt component library. It’s an excellent tool for quickly setting up a project, learning standard conventions, and storing your own custom components.
To access the Library Panel, open the Window Tab top bar and select You.i Library.jsx near the bottom of the dropdown menu.
The Library panel is multifaceted. You can use components from the default You.i library, create your own user library or even access a custom project library.
You can place components from the default library into your compositions and then modify that instance as required. Select the component within the Library panel and then click Add Icon to Project.
You can create a custom project library for all your branded components for easy access and exchange. Switch to the Project Library in the panel dropdown, then select the component and click the middle icon. To test the result, check for the component inside a Library folder created inside the AE folder of your project.
This option lets you create a library of your personal components. Switch to the User Library option in the library dropdown and then navigate to your personal library folder location using the Link a local user library icon beside the dropdown. The user library is then loaded in the panel. You can add more components to this library, edit the existing components, and even remove a component using Delete icon.
