It Works Like This

Check out the file in this chapter's folder on the book's DVD to see the final results of this project. You'll use these techniques:

  1. Paste Illustrator paths onto solid layers to create masks for the letters in the final project.

  2. Use a nonrendering Guide layer as reference when positioning the masks.

  3. Use the Stroke effect to create outlines of each letter.

  4. Create elaborate and precise animations by pasting the Illustrator paths again.

  5. Animate the Stroke effect to create the illusion of live drawing.

  6. Use a Keyframe Assistant to instantly create a mirror copy of your animations in time.

Illustrator files fan out and spin in the background.

The stars begin drawing white lines.

The lines form a word.
