I'm sorry if I sound REALLY stupid, because this seems like an extremely obvious question to ask, but HOW DO YOU DELETE LAYERS in CS4? I've looked everywhere, in AE help, on google, and nothing has showed up. I don't want to delete layer effects, I just want to know how to plain old delete a layer from compositions!?
Use your mouse to move the cursor over the layer. Click the mouse button to select the layer. On your keyboard press the Delete key.
There's also a menu command in the Edit menu. Just choose Edit > Clear. The menu command has a tip to remind you of the Delete key keyboard shortcut.
Thanks guys, I knew it would be simple.
