Adobe After Effects

Like many Adobe After Effects users, Trish and Chris Meyer's book ''Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects'' has long been Lon Clark's Holy Grail of AE information. (Besides Creative Cow, of course!) The pages of my copy are dog-eared and coffee stained from countless sessions of late-night referencing, and I regard it as an indispensable book in my collection. The Meyer's second AE book, published by CMP Books (the publishers of DV Magazine) is ''After Effects in Production: A companion for Creating Motion Graphics,'' and as excellent as CMG is, ''After Effects in Production'' is the perfect sequel.

Sometimes, you want to extend the image area to allow new possibilities in your designs. In this article, Lon Clark demonstrates that by creating crop marks, you define a new edge/size for the file and that can open up new design opportunities.
