You can do the following to add the remaining elements that appear in this chapter's finished project movie:

  • Add a white horizontal line between the CONSULTING, INC. text and the phone number, and animate its Scale from 0, 0% to 100, 100% to bring it into the scene.

  • Add a clock to the background to reiterate the company name, Time Honored Consulting. You can create the entire clock from scratch in only a few minutes by using solid layers. The one shown in the finished movie uses a white, comp-size solid with an elliptical mask set to -10 Mask Expansion. The lines are created with five 600x10 solid layers angled in increments of 30 degrees for each layer. The clock hands are solids, with rotation keyframes set at time 9:29 of 1x0 for the minute hand and 12x0 for the hour hand.
