My favourite After Effects CC2018 feature so far has to be the New Project option which allows you to set a custom template to load every time you start a new project.

Here’s how you set a custom template to load every time you start a new project

  1. Create a template you’ll be happy with. In my case that consists of folders for Assets, Pre-comps, Masters and Archive.

    .
  2. Save it on a location you know won’t be moving or changing.

    .
  3. Head to Preferences > New Project…

    .
  4. Tick “New Project loads template”, locate your template and click OK.

    .
  5. All done! Now every time you start a new project your template will be loaded.
