P.E.R.F.E.C.T. compositing

Andrew Kramer has a mnemonic to keep in mind: P.E.R.F.E.C.T. compositing. You can get the meat in his post and read the funny (for various reasons) comments...
  • Perspective
  • Esthetics (aesthetics, like Wotate)
  • Randomize
  • Feathering & light wrap
  • Environment
  • Color
  • Timing
A mnemonic for After Effects transformation property shortcuts is PARTS (parts is parts). Even more quaint mnemonics for color include 'Roy G. Biv' and 'Buy RC cola & General Motors.'
