    I’m getting file sizes in the 1-2gb range for lower thirds like this ranging from 4-8 seconds. Is this normal? How can I shrink file size without giving up too much quality? (all I’m doing is RGB+Alpha and muting the sound on the clip before exporting)

    I can not find the track matte option. Is there another way I can find it? Other then that, very nice tutorial.

    Edit: oh never mind I found it, if anybody else has the same problem just make sure you click on "toggle switches/modes" then another "none" button can pop up and you’ll be able to do alpha inverted…etc

    Great Niche market you are targeting.
    I LOVE your videos.
    Keep up the good work and eventually (if you have not done it yet) put all your knowledge together to create a small webinar which you will charge for and market in your social media.
    100k followers should get you at least 100 people to sign up in a monthly basis if marketed properly as "Justin Oldisho University" or what ever you want to call it lol

    100 people X $______ membership/product = X_____ your desired outcome.
    That’s what I would do if a goal was to market and make a revenue of income doing what you are already Doing.

    You really do make great starter videos, And I would pay for a webinar from you.

    Keep up the good work.

    This helped me! However when I pull it into Premier Pro, my fonts are in transparency and not the solid color I made it. What am I doing wrong?

    Superb tutorial. It was clear and you took "your time" in going through the steps, which is key. Many of the tutorials on YouTube do not instruct well by not going through the actual steps in AE. I have just subscribed to your channel. I am looking forward to more advanced tutorials.

    what do I do if I want a gradient colour in the rectangle? (just make a large gradient image in Photoshop and import in AE and scale it down?)

    its worth mentioning that not allformats render alpha. If you don’t have the rgb alpha option available choose a different format.

    thanks for these! I have had AE for a while…but just was never good at it (because I never used it much). But getting back into it, I want to learn more and these help a lot. Simple but they stack onto the skills accumulated to eventually go into my own projects with no tutorial needed. More AE tutorials! Thanks man
