In After Effects 5.5 Mac, I'd like to place a set of video clips into my composition. Normally, they all are placed at the same starting point. I would like to select all the clips in the project folder and place them in the composition so they run in order. I.E. clip one starts and when it stops, the 2nd clip starts at that end point. I have a bunch and I may or may not edit them individually in the composition but if this is possible, I may save a bit of time. Thanks in advance. Scott

You being by selecting your clips in the Project Panel, in the order that you want them to appear in the Timeline. Then drag the selected clips onto the Create New Comp icon at the bottom of the Project Panel.

You will be prompted with a dialog window. Ensure that Sequence Layers checkbox is enabled. Disregard the Overlap settings.
