I'm a very newbie on after effects and I have the following problem.
I was able to create a sort of video presentation using some text and video.
The length of my composition is about 60 seconds and I'm currently using 6 videos for ten seconds each.
All videos (from 1 to 6) are "aligned" with two layers (text and music) each
Now I would like to increase the duration of some videos, for example the first and the fourth.
I'm able to increase the VIDEO1 but then I have to manually increase the lenght of TEXT1 and SOUND1 (because I don't know if there are some short keys to do it): the problem
is that I need ALSO to move all the layers (from 2 to 6) of the same length and I don't know how to preserve the starting point.
The same problem is happening when I try to modify the VIDEO4.
Is there a way to solve this problem "elegantly"
Sure, use s video editing application. It's both better suited for the job and easier to learn.
Pre-compose the individual bits and use time-stretching.
