Hi from York UK :-)
I'm very new to After Effects so please forgive any clumsy phrases. I am trying to create an effect where three red boxes appear over time. Put another way box 1 appears 2 boxes appear then all three. Here is a screen grab for illustration:
The boxes belong to one layer as part of a logo, ive tried masks and sorts of other things but no success. Any method to achieve this much appreciated ;-)
I would either mask out the 3 boxes and recreate them with shape layers so you can individually animate the opacity of the shapes or create a layer above with shape layers with animated opacity to act as a track matte. Both techniques require masking and animating opacity. Are you familiar with those procedures?
Hi Rick & Thank you for your reply :-)
I am kind of familair with masking work via photoshop experience. I did try this technique yesterday but no doubt my inexperience was leading me up the wrong path,. I'm going to try again this after noon & will post back how i got on :-)
Thanks Rick, your technique did work for me ;-)
