- One thing that's quite difficult to do in Premiere Pro…is to animate an object moving around a circular path.…Here we have an example where I want to do that.…You'd like them to provide,…and your download credits never expire.…There are no other fees, and no minimum commitments.…So in this motion graphic sequence,…I want the dollar sign to move around the clock…when it's talking about your credits never expiring.…So I have got the dollar sign in here…and the way that I would normally approach this…in Premiere Pro is to switch on the handles for the motion…so that I could actually grab it.…
Maybe place it at the start point at 12 o'clock,…and let's just keyframe that.…(fast sound rewinding)…So we will just add a keyframe for position.…And then I think, okay where do I want it to go next?…(sound fast-forwarding)…So I'd maybe move half way through and drag it down here.…Okay. So it crosses over at the center point.…And then move half way between those keyframes.…
Move it to the side.…(sound fast-forwarding)…And then we will carry on.…
