This tutorial is on how to create guides in Adobe After Effects. I’ll show you how to create them, move them around, snap elements to them, show/hide them and remove them.

Before you watch it I want to give you fair warning! I recorded it sitting in my car while waiting in an enormous line to get my car inspected but I think it turned out pretty good. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel or at the bottom of this page (or both!) to be first to hear about new tutorials for After Effects, Avid Media Composer, Photoshop and more. I come out with one just about every Friday. I try to keep them pretty short — about 1:30-3:00 generally. Is there anything you’d like to see next week?
