I have 4 short videos and would like to put them on an animated timeline and they only play when the camera approaches the video, an example is this , Although I want to replace the still pictures with video, alas I have no idea how to make the video start at a certain time!; can anyone help me with this idea? is there a tut somewhere?
Cheers for any help
Put two copies of your first video in a new comp. Freeze frame the top video, move the bottom video down the timeline time the point where you want it to start and then just set an out point on the top copy. Now you have a comp where the video starts playing a few seconds in.
Nest this comp in your main comp as a replacement for the photos in the sample you provided.
Thanks Rick, I'll give that a go.
