    Using After Effects to project typography on a wall

    Joe Seven Level 1

      Hello,

       

      I need to create a simple projector loop for an art gallery that projects a quotation on a wall for 20 seconds, then transitions into a different quotation for 20 seconds, and finally transitions back to the first quote. This would then loop continuously.

       

      My questions:

       

      -- if I want to show the text as a "light" colour on a dark grey wall, how would I set up the colour in my AE composition? Would I use a black background and white text?

       

      -- also, for looping to work, is that set up by the media player or can I set up looping in the AE file?

       

      I know this may be a noob question but I've never worked with projections before.

       

      Thanks!
