Understand how generators work by building a flowing graphic background.
- [Instructor] Generators are really one of my…most favorite tools to use inside of a Motion project.…Whether you're trying to create something…relatively simple like a grid or a gradient,…or something more complicated…like abstract flowing graphics,…generators are the answer.…Now, if we look in our project,…you'll notice I have a ton of layers here,…and there are quite a few things…that I haven't quite covered yet in this course,…but that's okay.…Let me break things down.…I just want to focus on the Layers panel,…so let's start by pressing F6 to hide my timeline.…
Now, I'm just going to make my Layers panel…a little larger, so we can read some more…of the text in the Layers panel.…So, first thing, there are actually…two generators being used to create this graph.…Now I'm going to come down and press the Play button here…to begin playback, and you'll notice…I have a line that's moving across…this background grid, and I have a number that's changing.…Now, I'll go ahead and press the spacebar…to stop playback, and I'll move the playhead…
