So we come to our final section of this course, and it's the fade out,…appropriately enough.…Most times when you do a fade out it's pretty straightforward, and it will be…like this clip on the right side.…You would simply take your starting pose, make a keyframe at the end, go into…the Properties panel, go to brightness and go down to 0, set a motion tween and…then everything turns to black.…And you know what, for most of the time this is what I do, but once in a while you…might want something a little more special.…So that's why there's a different way of doing things, and I am going to go…through this fairly slowly, because it's quite subtle.…
As I scrub through the Timeline you notice that the different elements on the…left side are now tapering off at a slightly different rate, each one…individually controlled.…So let's play it in real time, and again and you notice that the one on the…left, it just feels a little more alive, a little more interesting, a little less uniform.…So let's have look inside that symbol and see how this is done.…
