Hi all,

I am new to After Effects and I am using the 2018 version. I have watched the lynda.com introduction videos to after effects and read articles as well. when I open up the after effects and I import an image, it just refuses to populate on my screen. Below is a screen shot of the image I just getting. Is something wrong with my setting? am i missing something? please help me out.

Thank you for your quick response. can you clarify what you mean by "double on composition layer" do you mean double click? if yes I have done that and nothing pops up. If possible can you send me a screen shot of what I should double click on so I can confirm I am doing the right thing.

Thank you

Hello,

Would you try to change the workspace? Something might be hidden.

Window menu > Workspace > (you choose anything else.)

Hello,

The image format seems *.jpg. Would you try this way?

1. You open the image file by Photoshop.

2. You save it as another different name. It is even fine to choose *.psd format.

3. You import it into After Effects and open it.
