we now have a hard cut between the title and the animation. Wouldn't it be nice if we added a short fade.
Add about 1 second of the first frame below the Title.
Use the Pen Tool(P) to insert two key frames at the beginning and end of the first frame. (You can ctl click to add key frames).
Then use the Effects Control to set the the opacity so that it fades in slowly.
