In After Effects, utilize the tilde key (~) to maximize your active panel for a clearer view, and employ the Preview Panel for full screen playback of your composition. Familiarize yourself with these tools to optimize your workspace and enhance your creative process.
In After Effects, the workspace is divided into different panels, each serving a unique purpose. One of the most frequently accessed panels is the Composition panel, where you visualize and work on your project. Sometimes, you might want to see your composition in a larger view, without the distractions of other panels. This is where the tilde key (~) comes into play.
Example: Imagine the tilde key as a zoom button on a camera. When you want a closer look at a subject, you zoom in. Similarly, when you want a closer look at your composition, you press the tilde key.
The Preview Panel is another essential tool in After Effects. It allows you to see a real-time playback of your composition. But what if you want this playback to be in full screen? Let's delve into that.
