Chapter 6. Auto-Scaling Type > Building the Second Background Layer

Building the Second Background Layer

At this stage, the background behind the text doesn't quite give you the sense of depth you're looking for. You'll use another layer that contains the Ramp effect to complete the illusion:

1.
Duplicate the Bottom Background layer, and press Enter to rename the duplicate layer Top Background.

You'll use this layer as the floor for the text; it will help give the composition more spatial depth.

2.
Select the Top Background layer, press P to reveal its Position property, and set the property to 360, 0.0. (If you chose a different font style or size than we specified for the Text layer, then you may need to adjust the Y value slightly to make the Top Background layer lie right underneath the Text layer's baseline.)
