Lesson 1. Creating 2D Elements from Hexa... > Adding complexity to the animation

Adding complexity to the animation

You've created a fairly sophisticated animation for your hexagon element, but now you can add interest and complexity by changing a few more properties. First, you'll stagger the starting points for the layers, so that each hexagon begins to appear at a different point in time in the composition. Then you'll adjust the opacity of the hexagons so that they fade in and then remain partially transparent.

Staggering the In points

The In point of a layer is the time at which the layer starts to appear in the composition. Right now, all your layers begin at 0:00, as shown by the position of the colored duration bar for each layer in the timeline. To create a more fluid animation, you'll offset the In points of the layers on the timeline.
