Split a Layer in Adobe After Effects

A simple thing, so a short post.  To split a layer in After Effects, the hotkey shortcut is Cmd+Shift+D.  This will split the layer at the position of the Current Time Indicator (the red line).  You can also select the layer and choose Edit -> Split Layer. This will work on audio, video, or image layers.
