Learn how to build a frame sequence from layers.
- [Instructor] In this brief chapter we're just going to wrap up the end title for this project. Now I'm in this After Effects project and an empty comp called end title at the moment. And so what I'm going to do first of all is just change the duration of this because I think it's woefully short so command k, control k here and this actually needs to be 10 seconds, not 10 frames. So if I type 1,000 in there, okay, and tab through you can see now I've got 10 seconds of duration.
Perfect, next I need to import an Illustrator file so, command I, control I to do that and in the chapter three files here I've got radial loop ai, so if I double click that to bring it in, going to bring that in as a composition and I'm going to keep the layer size footage in there, hit okay, and so in that comes. There's my comp and here are the layers underneath. So I'm going to drag that unto the comp area like so and then in the project panel I'm just going to double click on it here.
First thing I'm going to do is delete the tony png layer and then I've got these two layers underneath it, if I turn one off, radial one, okay and turn the other one off, radial two just there so, just really created with the polar grid and then colored alternately like so. So what I'm going to do now is I'm going to move the playhead to 10 frames and the quickest way for me to do that is just type it inside of the current time here, hit enter, you can see I'm at 10 frames.
I'm then going to select both of those layers, go up to edit, okay and then I'm going to split them like so okay, I'm going to delete the staff off the back there and then I'm just going to change where layer one or radial one kicks in. So you can see there goes through like that, okay and then I think I've gone to about six so I might just back that up, I'm just gonna do that again so you'll get me to do that one more time, I think if I go, I'll go to 15, I'll go to half of the cycle here and shift command d, shift control d to split those, delete and then drag that one out like so.
I think that's actually probably going to be a better arrangement just there. Now change the comp settings for this and this one I'm actually going to send this one to just one. So if I type 100 in there that should give me, I'm just gonna double check that, I think I was a bit keen, three 10 you see, 100 just there, perfect, and so now that's split evenly across that time and if I hit the space bar to play it, there you go, perfect, that's exactly what I'm after.
So I'll go back out to end title just here so if I double click on that to go back into editing that of course we could have done that here also. From the radial loop layers I'm going to drag the png back in like so. Now I'm going to add a solid, command y or control y to do that, so if I just bring that in, okay and that blue, actually I think I'll go with the blue.
I'm going to do that like so, so bring that in and then bring that down to the bottom, just there, nice. And finally, I'm just gonna go to the radial loop here and just change its opacity. So if I come down to the layer menu or go up to the layer menu and choose blending mode, I'm going to choose screen, then I'm going to tap t and just reduce the opacity slightly, okay, and let's just have a look at that, there we go, so we've got all of that running just there nicely, perfect.
So you might wonder why it's not actually playing and the answer is I need to just stretch out the work area so you can see it here and you can see how short that comp is, okay, and there you go, it switches between those two things like so. In the next movie we're going to find out how we can make that repeat along the rest of this timeline.
