I would lay out a project like this in Illustratiror placing each element that I want to animate on a separate layer. You may want to place all your locations on a single layer and then use an animated track matte to reveal them in order.
Thank you very much for your help Rick.
Just curious, why Illustrator? Would it be faster to create so many layers in Illustrator, than in AE or Photoshop?
Would it be possible to do this with the Repeater Effect In AE?
I may create a custom shape in Illustratiror. The
repeator will not work because each duplicate will be offset by the same value so you will not be able to position them accurately.
You are spending more time trying to avoid duplicating layers than it would take to just do the work.
Understood Rick, will do it in Illustrator then. I just tried the Repeater Effect and I see what you mean.
Thanks again for your help.
Speaking of Illustrator Rick,
I just created 175 dots on the map to represent each of the killing fields. Is it possible in Illustrator to change all 175 dots to any other shape without having to change each one again manually. Let's say for example that I wanted to replace the 175 dots on the map with 175 squares or triangles, can this be done in one step in Ilustrator???
Thank you in advance.
That's what symbols are for. Read up on it.
