Lesson 3. Animating Circles > Creating line circles

Creating line circles

The first component is an animation of a set of circle outlines that draw over a four-second period. You'll create the circles within After Effects using the mask tools and the Stroke effect. The only prepared footage file you'll use is an image that serves as a reference for drawing the masks. Eventually, you'll incorporate this component into a multiple-rings image and use the result to create a QuickTime movie.

Importing the footage file

The source file that you'll work with in this project is a ring image, created as a single-layered Photoshop file with an alpha channel.
