Quizzler challenges

Video: Quizzler challenges

As is our custom we've got a couple of Quizzler challenges for you just to make sure you've been learning the concepts we've been teaching in this lesson. The first one is this animation. It's similar to one of the first ones you created in this lesson. We have our two masks at the background and we have our title, but rather than wiping on the title, we're bringing it on a word at a time. How would you do that? I'll give you a hint. There are actually two different solutions, both working equally well. See if you can think of at least one if not both of them. The second challenge is this one.

Note that we have a nice little stroke drawing around the outside of our animated leaf mask path. How would we animate this outline of the mask path? How would we make it draw in the opposite direction? How would we make it draw from the top rather than from the bottom? See if you can figure those out. Once you think you've got a good idea, watch next couple of movies and see if you got it right.
