Make sure the following files are in the AECS3_CIB/Lessons/Lesson02 folder on
your hard disk, or copy them from the Adobe After Effects CS3 Classroom in a Book
In Lesson 1, you learned how to import footage by choosing File > Import > File.
However, After Effects also offers another, more powerful and flexible way to import
footage for a composition: using Adobe Bridge. You can use Adobe Bridge to organize,
browse, and locate the assets you need to create content for print, the web, television,
DVD, film, and mobile devices. Adobe Bridge keeps native Adobe files (such as PSD and
PDF files) as well as non\u00adAdobe application files available for easy access. You can drag
assets into your layouts, projects, and compositions as needed\u037e preview assets\u037e and even
add metadata (file information) to assets to make files easier to locate.
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
