Composition Panel

The Composition panel is one of the most important panels in After Effects. It is the preview window and the main animation space that you work in when building an After Effects project. You can build your animated projects in this panel, and it has features you can use to change how your composition previews. Perhaps you want to create, show, or hide guidelines. Or maybe you need to isolate the alpha channel of your composition so that you can see which areas are transparent and which are opaque. This can all be accomplished in the Composition panel.

However, it is important to understand that this is not always a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) representation of how You.i TV’s software will translate from After Effects to a production application. It is a best practice to always preview your animation and designs using the You.i Preview Tool.
