Second Animation: Pops

Things Learnt

  • Shortcut for Masks


  • Using Masks for Pops

Create a shape > create a mask > Key the expansion of the mask to animate growth

Mask on add mode, displays more of the original shape, and Subtract hides it.


I also, added lines flowing across the screen by myself to see if I had actually learned how to use the repeater function from the previous video, and I think I can count this as a success.
