Try animating a mask on a solid.
Place the solid over the map?
I'll try that.
Let you know in 2 or 3 months how it worked ;-)
Don't take that long to know whether it'll work or not... You'll probably also want to play around with Blend Modes. Perhaps a b&w version of the map over the solid set to Multiply.
Another way that you should experiment with: Using a track matte instead of a mask. Then you could precompose a bunch of layers that would make up the matte, have more control over effects, etc. Also, Roughen Edges on the matte might be a nice effect to show it peeling away.
I used to do this with solids and animated mask paths but CS3 now has shape <br />layers which makes it much easier to do. Plus with shape layers you can <br />animate all the individual options like path shapes, stroke, color etc... <br />too.<br /><br /><Studio_Era@adobeforums.com> wrote in message <br />news:firstname.lastname@example.orgNXanI...<br />> Hello,<br />> We need to make a map of the Roman Empire shrinking (ie. showing the fall <br />> of the Roman Empire)for a school demonstration.<br />><br />> Would anyone know of a tutorial that would help explain how to do this?<br />><br />> Thank you for your attention,<br />> Brad & Petra Foubister
Thank you very much for your help.
I started making it by changing the opacity of a layer and moving the borders via vector.
Time consuming, but effective.
I will try the shape layers today as well.
Thank you again,
