Transitions can also be complex and provide an interesting focal point for switching scenes. In this video, Andy demonstrates how to build a complex transition and shares his process for iterating the design to produce variations.
- [Instructor] In this movie we're going to build … a more complex transition and look at how we can repurpose … the same animation to create … additional transitional devices. … First move over to our starting composition. … Now we'll look at our reference which is this top layer, … when building a more complex transition it's useful to see … if there's anything in the image you're transitioning to … or from that could inform how you build … and animate the transition. … In this case we have four columns, holding images. … So it would make sense to bring in each column … individually and we can do this in a number of ways. … Sequentially from left to right, … we could reverse that of course, we could randomize it. … Or we could have some of the columns come in from the top … and some from the bottom, so we'll start by duplicating … this solid layer a few times. … Next we're going to add some guides. … So I'm going to press Cmd + R to reveal the rulers, … it's Ctrl + R on a PC and we'll just drag out a guide …
