…When we showed you what you'd be creating,…in the shots there were various particles and…shapes that were colliding with each other and…adding a level of complexity to the shot.…And they kind of serve a dual purpose in the sense that their…motion is driving the motion of the spaces logo towards its final resolve.…So, we need to set that up, and we're going to use the mograph tools to do that.…Let's unhide the roof, because we're going to…create a spline, that will describe the…path of our particles, and then use a cloner to clone onto that spline object.…
So, we'll unhide our roof to see the bounds of where we want our.…Splines to be drawn and we want it to come from around the wall…area and if we go into the top view lets start drawing a spline out.…So lets use the Bezier tool.…We want the Spline to as said come…from around the wall area and we'll create another…point and we want it to kind of maybe flow in this direction, and then come around.…
And flow in front of the logo and we'll just finish off there.…
