So I am fairly new to After Effects and I've been trying to follow a few tutorials online on how to make use of the "scribbling" effect on music videos. I followed this tutorial: Animated Music Video Scribble Effect in After Effects! (Tutorial / How to) (CC 2017) - YouTube
BUT I skipped the premier pro part because I don't have it yet (I will in a couple of hours)
So first of all I have been editing a 44 second video that I imported to AE, then I created a new layer and activated the brush and paint on the side bar and started "drawing" on the video frame by frame, (total brush strokes were 2192) - but its been very hard to work since its been very "laggy", choppy, slow and when I finally think I am done and I export it, none of my brush strokes show up on the video! Please help - I have spent the past 5 hours on this and I'd just like some answers at this point. I'll appreciate anything, thank you!
Is there any way I can save my work and then just add it on top of the video again as a layer? (I attached a picture of what I've been working with below, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.. that could hopefully be fixed?)
YOU HAVE OFFICIALLY SAVED MY LIFE AND MY PRECIOUS TIME.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
