Adding dynamic rotations for a symmetrical wave

In this movie we're going to take our square gradient dot pattern and we're going to give it a little more style by adding some wave. Specifically we're going to create this effect here in which the center squares are now rotated so that they're diamonds. And then notice that the pattern rotates downward so we have squares and then rotates back upward so we have diamonds again. And the effect is symmetrical. So we start with diamonds on the right-hand side, rotate down and then up again to diamonds in the center, and then down and up again to diamonds on the left-hand side.

And we'll be creating this effect entirely using Dynamic Effects. So, I'll switch back over to my document in progress and somewhere around here is the center column of dots. I'll press the A key to switch to the White Arrow tool, and then I'll go up to the View Menu and chose the Outline command, which has a keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+Y or Cmd+Y on the Mac. And now that I can see exactly where these s...
