Lesson 2. Ballet Special Bumper

Lesson 2. Ballet Special Bumper

In this lesson, you'll create a short promotional video, using more advanced settings and controls for animation.

Using video footage that comes to us courtesy of the Oakland Ballet, you will create a composition for a 10-second bumper to be used for a fictitious television special on ballet. A bumper is a short clip, similar to a commercial, informing TV viewers of what's coming up. They are usually shown before a commercial; the opening credits of the actual program follow the commercial.

This lesson builds on your knowledge of setting keyframes and expands on the concept of animating layers over space and time.

As you create this project, you will focus on using the Basic Text effect for creating text "on the fly," changing duration and In points and Out points of layers, and modifying a motion path.

This lesson covers the following topics:

  • Trimming a layer

  • Using the Basic Text effect

  • Copying and pasting keyframes

  • Aligning and distributing layers

  • Defining spatial and temporal interpolation

  • Creating and modifying a motion path

  • Using roving keyframes

At the end of this lesson, you'll have a 10-second bumper for a television special.

It should take approximately 3 to 5 hours to complete this project.
