- Additional key framing techniques
- Simplifying compositions by 'grouping' layers together
- How to add sound to the compositions.
Can apply these techniques to any layers
Working with accelaration and decelaration
Easing in and easing out
Select the first keyframe
Key frame asst.
Ease out to accelerate away from he key frame
To ease in select last keyframe
To ease in and out select both first and last key frames then select Easy Ease
Using the Graph Editor
On the toolbar select Graph editor
Gives and opportunity to change the speed
Can deselect keyframes using handles
Can use purely the Graph Editor instead of easing out/in
Select solid layer then double click elipse to create a elipse
Consider how the object will rotate around the acbchor point
Use the Pan behind tool (y) select anchor point then move as appropriate
Simplify compositions using multiple layers and groups
Allows you to link layers together
Ensure the layers are positioned how you want them to appear
Establish parent/child relationship using the parent drop down menu next to the layer switches.
The drop down menu shows each of the other layer names.
Select the parent for each layer as relevant
The child layer can be animated independently however always bound to the parent.
Reminer- to get object to follow path - AUTO-ORIENTATE
Can use Rove across time for key frames
Nesting Compositions inside each other
or can create a new comp then nest into a 'main comp.
Sound files -AIFF or WAV
use RAM preview to playback sound
Ensure when add to render queue that audio output switched on as below
