To generate a see-through background in Adobe After Effects, you will need to follow these steps:
1. Launch Adobe After Effects and commence a new project.
2. Go to the Composition menu and select New Composition. Set the desired width, height, duration, and frame rate for your project.
3. To create a transparent background in your composition, click on the Toggle Transparency Grid button next to the active camera dropdown. This will show the transparency grid on your composition.
4. Add a text element to your composition and animate it as desired.
5. When you have finished animating your text, add the composition to the Render Queue by going to Composition and selecting Add to Render Queue.
