How to use the After Effects Source File

You will find two white transparent solid guide layers on top and bottom. The top guide later size is 140PX and the bottom guide layer size is 250PX

The Project is structured in an organized folder structure. The project panel looks like the below image,

Folders are color coded – Red represents you should delete or make any changes to it, and Yellow represents change asset only. Green means you can add, delete and do custom animation. The same color structure applies to pre-comp and layers.

Step 1: First is the Assets folder, add your asset in a folder as names.

Step 2: Open Background Area Pre-Comp to add your custom background.

Step 3: Open Vertical Text Pre-Comp and add your copy. (All three cards have their own custom Text Pre-Comp)

Step 4: Inside the Media Edit folder there are three Pre-Comp #1_Media Holder, #2_Media Holder, and #3_Media Holder you should add one asset in each Pre-Comp

Step 5: Inside Media Display(s) folder you will find 3 Pre-Comp. Open each comp to turn the Copy or Vertical Text layer on or off the copy Pre-Comp. (Recommending keeping only one layer on.)
