It Works Like This

Check out the file to see the final results of this chapter's project. The chapter shows you how to make still images of an office come to life. Here's an overview of the steps required to complete the project:

  1. Assemble still photos of a room to create an animated sequence for the background that ends the final movie.

  2. Animate a still image to create the zooming-out effect that opens the final movie.

  3. Add transitions between the sketches, and animate them by assigning a Parent layer.

  4. Track the motion in the still image you animated by using a Perspective Corner Pin tracker.

  5. Apply the motion you tracked to a movie file, so the file fills the TV screen in the still image.

A close-up view of a sketch of a room zooms out to a full view.

The sketch fades to reveal the original photo.
