Lesson 5. Horror Festival Ad > Using the Offset effect

Using the Offset effect

Now you'll animate the different cloud layers by using the Offset effect. This effect creates off-screen copies of the specified layer and lines them up edge to edge, repeating them as needed to create an infinitely large virtual layer that extends in two directions outside the composition. When you specify an offset, this huge virtual layer moves behind the real one, using the real layer as a sort of window through to the larger, tiled image.

The Offset effect is particularly useful with a layer that has been designed so that it can cleanly wrap at its edges. (This effect can be used to create a continuously moving background in cartoons, for example.)
