Q. What are ‘Slideshows’?
When we create a presentation with a series of still images in some kind of pre-arranged sequence or using a certain type of animation to display the same, it is known as slideshows.
Slideshows can be created with any basic editing software or even with Microsoft’s PowerPoint office tool. But in order to make the still images come to life and to make them more appealing, you can use After Effects and our templates to create some amazing slideshow animations.
You can check out more After Effects Tutorials on Infographic Animation on our YouTube Channel.
Q. What is ‘Track Matte’ in After Effects?
When you want one layer to show through holes defined by another layer, set up a track matte. The underlying layer (the fill layer) gets its transparency values from the values of certain channels in the track matte layer—either it's an alpha channel or the luminance of its pixels.
For example, you can use a text layer as a track matte for a video layer to allow the video to only show through the shapes defined by the text characters.
Q. What is a ‘Guide Layer’ in After Effects?
A guide layer appears in the current composition but not in any subsequent compositions or the final render (unless it is specifically overridden in Render Settings.)
You can use this for:
• Foreground reference clips (picture-in-picture timing reference, aspect ratio crop reference)
• Temporary backgrounds to check edges when creating a matte
• Text notes to yourself
• Adjustment layers that are used only to check images (described further in the next chapter); a layer can be both an adjustment and a guide layer
