So it was easy enough to make the change on this level, of course.…All I had to do is go in here and hit F5 to make that longer.…I am going to copy this layer by Alt+ dragging, and I'll show you what the…first pass of this process looked like. So, I want to remove the in-between…frames that I've created for this to take us back pretty much to where we…were in the previous section.…
So the first thing that I would have done was simply to take each of the frames,…and hit F5 to add an empty placeholder.…This is now moving at half the speed that it was.…Now bear in mind that the frame rate of this project is 30 frames a second, so…when we take these frames and expand them, what we are doing is making it…
