…In the previous movies, we worked on…this animation, which consists of spheres and lines.…We've connected these spheres using the connected layers free script.…And now we need to time the animation…to the appearance of these little spheres, and also…match it to the audio guide, which I currently…turned off, but it is present in this timeline.…So, I am going to scroll down and I am going to do it while…I'm holding down my mouse and pressing on the eye for the visibility of the layer.…
And this will allow me to quickly turn off a couple of layers at the same time.…Now I don't want to turn off the spheres,…I just wanted the yellow layers to be turned off.…And then let's turn on the first layer, and also, let's move our time indicator to…around two seconds where we have a couple of sphere on the screen already moving.…Now, we need to time it and we need to find the…place where we can see sphere number 15 and sphere number 12.…
Now, of course you can do it using the name of the layers, over here.…But I'm just going to eyeball it.…
These lessons are perfect for motion graphics artists who want to create earthy physics simulations and add realistic motion to their projects.
