    Simple Question: Backgorund Image

    yick04

      How do I add a static image to the background of my project in After Effects?

       

      Also, is it possible to swap out the image for another throughout the timeline? Or would that require multiple layers?

          This is a really basic question. AE is a layer based app. You can put just about anything on a layer. You can only put one thing on a layer. If you need multiple still images in the background, then put them on the bottom layers and adjust the in points of each layer as needed.
