In this Photoshop video tutorial, Richard Harrington gives a quick tip on how to use Photoshop CS3 layers styles and move them into Adobe After Effects. Adobe CS3 has improved the way Photoshop layer styles are transferred into After Effects and creates a much more user friendly experience. Some additional topics covered in this tutorial are the contour settings for drop shadow and outer glow, the pattern overlay filter tools and finally modifying the Photoshop layer styles directly in AE.
