Learn about adding a new layer and drawing river.
- [Instructor] Remember that the scenario…for this map is showing directions…from this motorway or freeway…over to this location on the right hand side.…And we've truncated any of the unnecessary roads…not part of that journey so that only…the functional roads are complete.…But now we need to do something to make…the roads that we've kind of truncated…more attractive, because currently those abrupt…endings are not great, really.…
Now if you do want to recall which roads…were truncated, you can turn on the ref map layer…there and see the original map on which the sketch…was based and that will give you a clearer idea.…But I'm going to turn that off now and target…the pre-drawn layer so we can…begin fading out those extra roads.…We'll start that by collecting those into a new layer…so we can create an opacity mask.…So if we go up to the panel flyout…and choose Collect in New Layer,…then a new layer is created and the pre-drawn layer…gets nested into it.…
I'm going to rename mine Roads,…that seems as good a name as any…
