Lesson 7. Special Effects for Film > Positioning the CD-ROM image

Positioning the CD-ROM image

The only layer left to add is an image of a CD-ROM, which was created in After Effects. To make the CD fly, you'll create a motion path and define Scale and Rotation keyframes.

Here's the flight plan you'll set up for the flying CD: it starts scaled down to nothing, flies out of the center of the light flare in FX_HiR.mov, increases in size and flies past the man, circles back, dives into his hand, and then jumps out and back into the light flare. Feel free to experiment with your own motion path.
