    Newbie Question regarding Effects

    RalfRottmann
      Hi there,

      I've got what might be a pretty stupid beginner's question but I could not find a reasonable answer elsewhere (tried Google, Lynda.com etc.)

      Do effects in Adobe After Effects CS4 always apply to the entire content in the active Layer? In Adobe Premiere CS4 I can precisely set the start and enpoint for an effect but this seems not to be the concept in After Effects or do I get something completely wrong?

      What I'd like to do is to have a specific effect start say at 120 seconds from the beginning of a clip (in a Layer) and end at 240 seconds. Can this be done in After Effects? If so: How?

      Your help is greatly appreciated.

      -Ralf
