Getting started

You'll begin this lesson by viewing the final movie file, which contains the finished Adobe LiveMotion composition combined with three QuickTime movies in Adobe GoLive.

1.
Start Adobe GoLive or a QuickTime movie player.

2.
Choose File > Open, select the 12End.mov file, and click Open. The path to the file is Lesson12/12End/12End.mov.

3.
Click the play button () at the bottom of the window to play the movie.

4.
Move the mouse pointer over the orbiting stars as they come into view.

Notice that the pointer changes to a hand, indicating that the stars are actually rollover buttons. Each rollover button is linked to a different QuickTime movie.

5.
Click one of the orbiting stars to play a movie.

To create this file, we set up a timeline in LiveMotion, including placeholders for three QuickTime movies. We used LiveMotion to create the line of text scrolling at the bottom of the movie by changing the X coordinate of a text object over time. Then we used Adobe GoLive to integrate the final LiveMotion composition with the QuickTime movies. Finally, we used Adobe GoLive to add sound and special effects to the movies.

6.
Click another orbiting star to see another movie.

7.
When you're done previewing the movie, choose File > Close to close the file. Then choose File > Quit to quit Adobe GoLive or the QuickTime movie player.
