Lesson 12. Changing Motion Properties > Creating a Motion Path

Creating a Motion Path

In the preceding exercise, the clips you animated used the Scale and Rotation parameters but did not change the position of the clips. When you animate the position of an image over time, you create a motion path along which the image travels. Motion paths can be as simple as a straight line so that the image moves across the screen from one point, or keyframe, to another. Or it can include several keyframes that dictate very specific twists and turns. Creating complex motion paths is an art. These steps will expose you to some of the basic principles.

In this exercise, you will add keyframes to the uppermost freeze-frame image to change its position over time.
