    The Layer Timeline window and the Footage(?) window

    karenf1 Level 1

      I've been trying to learn AE & finding it confusing. one of the most confusing things is The Layer Timeline window and the Footage(?) window. They both appear in the same place using different tabs. And I don't know how to explain this: But - when I put a still photo into the Timeline Layer it doesn't appear if I scrub beyond the first frame. If I place movie footage into the layer timeline i can scrub thru & see it. I'm working mostly with still images that I want to place animated titles over. Can someone point me towards some info to help me understand both how to do this & how to understand whhen to use the Footage windo - VS - the Layers / Timeline. This is so confusing - I hope I asked a coherent question!

      Many thanks!
