I've seen other programs having actually a "merge" option. So for example 2 pictures come to be 1 and also now have the right to be moved/animated favor 1.

You are watching: How to merge layers in after effects


*

Two ways you can do that in after ~ Effects:

Without literally merging them, select the great you desire to "merge" and choose Layer>Pre-compose...

If you must merge lock for part reason, girlfriend Render the layers out you want "merged" together a PSD/PNG/JPG or TIFF and also then income that perfect render record back right into After Effects.

Either of these options will then allow you to move/animate them together one.


If her goal is come move/animate 2 pictures or any type of great together, you can likewise do the following:

1- develop a new Null thing layer (Layer > new > Null Object). This great does not render and the crate you view is only for to express the anchor suggest and computer animation paths.

2- parent the class you wish to animate together one to the Null object layer.

3- apply the position, rotation, scale, opacity, etc. Animations come the Null object layer, and also all the kid layers will follow.

This is also helpful in that it allows you to produce unique animations/effects come each picture layer, then manage them all together with a general animation/effect in the parent layer (Null thing in this case).
