Lesson 9. Finishing the 3D Composite > Adding the TextCircle element

Adding the TextCircle element

In this task, you add the circular text element that you built in an earlier lesson. After you duplicate the layer twice, you have all the TextCircle 3D layers you need.

1.
Set the current-time marker at 3:13.

2.
In the Project window, select the TextCircle.mov and drag it into the Timeline window, placing it into the Layer 1 position in the layer stack.

3.
Choose Edit > Duplicate twice to create two copies of the layer. You now have a total of three TextCircle.mov layers: Layer 1, Layer 2, and Layer 3.

4.
Set the current-time marker to 5:10 and select Layer 2.

5.
Press [ (left bracket). The layer duration bar moves so that the Layer 2 In point is at 5:10.

6.
Set the current-time marker to 6:11, select Layer 3, and press [ (left bracket) to set the Layer 3 In point at 6:11.

7.
In the Timeline window, open the Switches panel. Then select all three TextCircle.mov layers and click one of the 3D Layers switches to make them all 3D layers.

All the layers now temporarily disappear from the Composition window because they are not positioned in the camera view. You'll correct that in another procedure.
