It Works Like This


Check out the Ch1_Finished_Movie.mov file in this chapter's folder on the book's DVD to see the 15-second advertisement you'll create in this project. The project uses solids to create interesting layouts from scratch and creates modular sequences that you can duplicate and easily modify to quickly build a cohesive presentation. You can take these skills and use them to create your own layouts out of solids or replace the solids with textures and other footage. The basic principles of this project are as follows:

  1. Design interesting animations and layouts using nothing but solids.

  2. Use solids to matte images of various sizes.

  3. Use effects to transition from one sequence to another and to bring text onto the screen.
