One of the more interesting gestures is the long press. Its purpose is to give focus to the selected object. In this video, explore one method of the prototyping this gesture.
- [Male Instructor] When you really think about it,…the long press is a rather fascinating event.…It is commonly used in mobile interfaces…to remove apps or other elements…or to bring UI elements to the front.…In other words, sort of lift them up closer to the user.…In After Effects, this is rather easy to simulate.…Let's get started.…To get yourselves started,…open the 03 long press file found in your chapter download.…As you can see, there is a tap event in the cursor layer…and there is an app icon under it.…
There's the app and there's the cursor.…If we press the U key with the cursor layer,…you can see there are the key frames there…and if we scrub across, there we go.…The plan is to have this hold for about 25 frames.…15 and 25, that's 40 so we're going to…have to come out to here which means…we're going to have to increase the duration.…We're going to need a little bit more duration…because the user's going to let go of it…and the icon is going to shrink as well.…What we're going to do is we're going to select the cursor layer.…
