Hey there Creatives, 

 

When exactly do I precompose a layer? I am currently watching Avnish Parker videos and he ALWAYS precomposes the logo or text. When do I exactly precompose something and when is it necessary? What are the benefits? 

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Peace.

Sometimes you do it to control the hierarchical rendering order of After Effects, but any time you want to group layers together is a good time to pre-Comp.  Of course, you can always consider Parenting instead.

 

When it comes to logos or text, pre-Comps allow you to style the type in the containing Comp which can allow for flexibility when it comes to creating iterations of the logos or text later.
