Chapter 3. Wall of Squares > Building the Sections

Building the Sections

By now you're undoubtedly ready to get going with the sections. Once you see all the pieces working together, you'll be delighted with the effect. Let's use the components and begin building the orange section.

Act 1: orange

1.
Create a new composition named 1_Orange that is—you guessed it—720×540, with Frame Rate 29.97 and Duration 10;00 seconds.

2.
Add the Orange Squares BG comp to the Timeline at 0;00.

3.
Go to time 2;00, and create a new pale orange solid (RGB: 255, 194, 137) that's comp size and named Pale Orange BG.

4.
Drag the new solid under the Squares BG layer in the Timeline.

5.
Add a 100% Opacity keyframe (Windows: Alt+Shift+T; Mac OS: Option+Shift+T) to the Squares BG layer.

6.
Go forward 10 frames, and add a 50% Opacity keyframe.

Fading down the Orange Squares BG comp, and adding a solid underneath to warm it up
