Q. What are ‘Shape Layers’ in After Effects?
Shape layers contain vector graphics objects called shapes. By default, a shape consists of a path, a stroke, and a fill. Shape layers are not based on footage items. Layers that are not based on footage items are sometimes called synthetic layers. Text layers are also synthetic layers and are also composed of vector graphics objects, so many of the rules and guidelines that apply to text layers also apply to shape layers.
Q. What are ‘Trim Paths’ in After Effects?
The tools that allow you to make precise adjustments to shape layer paths in After Effects is Trim Paths. It can be used kinds of projects associated with Infographics, Shape Bursts, Text Box, Text Stokes etc.
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.
