Is it possible to add a table to CS3. I am working in 768 x 1320 and want to insert a 5 row 3 column table. I am a novice user of AE and Photoshop and think drawing it out would be too time consuming.

Cheers.

Sorry, but you'd better fire up the coffee pot, and make sure that Java is good and strong. You'll need it.

As far as I know there is no way to make an instant table. This is, after all, After Effects and not Microsoft Word, and AE is designed for a totally different set of problems and needs.

Chris Zwar has a script on his website that is really handy for making a grid of images... which is what I presume you are after.

Or are you looking for something even more simple, just drawing a grid? There's a Grid effect.
