- In this movie, we're gonna rotate our paths,…and then we're gonna fuse them all together…in order to create a single path outline…as you see here.…So that the rocket is truly a negative space…inside of the planet Saturn.…Alright, I'll go ahead and switch over…to my document in progress here…and the first thing thing we want to do…is duplicate the "base shapes" layer.…After all, we don't want to lose our original base shapes.…That would be a crime.…And to duplicate a layer,…you select it here inside the layers panel,…then go to the panel's flyout menu…and choose Duplicate "Base Shapes" in our case…in order to create a copy of that layer.…
Then turn off the original so you don't mess it up.…Now, go ahead and double-click in an empty portion…of the new layer to bring up the Layer Options dialog box.…Go ahead and call this guy, "fused art" let's say,…and change the color of the layer to Dark Green.…At least that's what I'm gonna do.…And then, go ahead and click OK.…Alright, now we want to rotate the shapes…so go ahead and select them all by pressing…
