    what exactly is a 'pre comp' please?

    Level 1
      hey guys!!

      i am just getting to grips with the basics of AE CS4 and i am loving it!! what a fantastic piece of software!

      now i am new to this so apologies for the silly questions but just trying to get my head around how AE works!
      re pre comps, i had a comp with lots of layers and i wanted to animate it as a whole so i made these into a pre comp, animated and had my wicked way with them and then just rendered this 'pre comp' is this how they work please?

      so a comp is like a mini project right?
      but can someone explain what a pre comp is please as i have watched many tutorials on this and they assume you already know what one is??

      a clear down to earth explanation would be great! thanks!
