I'm using After Effects cc2017 and I am wondering if it is possible to group two or more objects in order to align them to the composition? I have two graphics I wish to center. You can do this in other Adobe software applications such as Illustrator by going to the object menu and selecting group**.**

Yes- you can connect objects together using something called parenting. There’s a tutorial here


You could also pre-comp the objects together.


Parenting is like one object controlling another (or one object controlling many other objects). Precomping is more like making a new video and placing your objects inside it (sometimes called nesting in video editors).
