If you’d like to add a shape to your Adobe After Effects composition, you could do so using the shape tool.
Go ahead and click on the shape tool up on the toolbar and you have a rectangle tool, a rounded rectangle tool, ellipse, polygon or a star tool. So go ahead and select the one that you would like to use and then over here you’ll see the fill. You could go ahead and click on this and then you could set the fill and then you can also set the stroke.
You can then go over to your composition and you can draw your shape. Just click on drag to draw the shape. Also if you’re doing a rectangular or an ellipse you can go ahead and hold down your SHIFT key and as you go ahead and you draw a shape, it will go ahead and become a perfect square or a perfect circle.
So that’s how you can add shapes to your Adobe After Effects compositions.
