Chapter 3. Wall of Squares > Building More Elements

Building More Elements

Next, you'll create a 3D element in black and white that you can use as a matte for any color solid. It's a fun little flip that will showcase the client's products.

The first step

1.
In the Project window, create a folder named Flips.

2.
In the Flips folder, add a new composition named Horizontal Flip that has dimensions 720×540, Frame Rate 29.97, and Duration 10;00 seconds.

3.
Create a new solid named Flip_Square that has dimensions 150×150 and is colored white (RGB: 255, 255, 255).

Note

Normally, you wouldn't use pure white for broadcast. However, this will be a matte, so it won't be visible.

4.
Turn on this layer's 3D switch in the Timeline.

5.
Set up a four-comp view (Window > Workspace > Four Comp Views) so you can see the solid rotate in space.

6.
Set the layer's Anchor Point to 0, 75, 0 and its Position to 360, 270, 0.

7.
Go to time 0;10, and add a keyframe for Y Rotation with a value of 0 x +0.0.

8.
Press Home to go to time 0;00, and then change the Y Rotation to 0 x +90.
