Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the second base frame, part of After Effects and mocha AE: Screen Replacement.
…I've finished creating my first base frame and propagating it early and later in time…to cover about the maximum number of frames…I thought that information would be good for.…Now i want to go to a later point in time with a significantly different pose.…Create a base frame for this point and…then propagate its strokes earlier and later in time.…Again, I'm not going to drag you through…the entire process of making every single stroke.…I'm probably going to be here about an hour of doing…that, but I did want to take you through…the procedure of how you make a second base frame.…
It's actually pretty simple.…I'm still in the Layer Panel.…I'm going to zoom back in again.…And notice my pink segmentation boundary goes all the way around the frame.…That's because I have no span covering the current time and I literally just resize…my brush by holding Cmd and Ctrl, scrubbing…and defining what's the foreground, this hand's foreground…as well, and what's the background. Cmd or Ctrl, make a smaller brush.…Option, or ALT and drag a stroke that I want subtracted, like through here.…
