Q. What is an ‘Intro’ in videos?


Intros are the part of a video that is used to give a brief introduction about the content of the video or/and to promote the brand by displaying some logo animations for viewer retention and easy recognisability, it is a part of branding.

Q. What is ‘Gradient Ramp’ in After Effects?


We’ll be using Gradients in this After Effects tutorial so have a look at what it is: The Gradient Ramp effect creates a colour gradient. You can create linear or radial ramps, and vary the position and colours of the ramp over time. Use the Start Of Ramp and End Of Ramp properties to specify the start and end positions. Use the Ramp Scatter control to disperse the ramp colours and eliminate banding.

Q. What is ‘Pre-Composing’ in After Effects?


If you want to group some layers that are already in a composition, you can precompose those layers. Precomposing layers places them in a new composition, which replaces the layers in the original composition. The new nested composition becomes the source for a single layer in the original composition. The new composition appears in the Project panel and is available for rendering or use in any other composition. You can nest compositions by adding an existing composition to another composition, just as you would add any other footage item to a composition. Precomposing a single layer is useful for adding transform properties to a layer and influencing the order in which elements of a composition are rendered.
