It can be said that there are two types of After Effects users. Those who Flowchart and those who do not. If you belong to the Flowchart camp, it is highly likely that you use it to get around the rat’s nest of pre-compositions and material in any given project. The Flowchart can be more useful than just simple wayfaring, according to Alan Demafiles (@demafleez)
Alan shows us that the underutilized feature in Ae can really enhance your workflow for more than just getting around quickly. In fact, you can use the chart to quickly select and manage the contents of your project. Why not? It’s easy to get a bird’s eye overview for what is happening in an after effects project. Why not use it for more than just navigation? Nice tip!
