I'm not sure that I follow you. There are 4 background areas each containing an animated photo and text. If you only want to see the first one , then the first and second as you transition to #2, then two and three as you transition to #3, then three and four as you transition to #4, then all you have to do is set outpoints and in points for the layers.
If you're talking about the motion artifacts then you have to adjust the speed a bit to smooth out the camera moves. If there's something else please explain.
Like Rick, I'm not sure I follow you...
Let's say you built your composition something like this:
[scene 1][scene 2]
[scene 3][scene 4]
If you don't want to see graphic elements from 'scene 1' and 'scene 4' while moving camera view from 'scene 3' to 'scene 2', just cut layers with unnecessary content, keeping ones with your background only...
You explained it correctly and I'm not sure why I didn't figure this out. See the image:
The circled stuff is what I don't want viewer to see during the diagnol fly-by from upper right to lower left of camera movement. What I did was lazily just make one large file with photo and text on all of them (except for the 1st scene in upper left). During the diagnol fly by you can see the lower right stuff (circle) and I was hoping there was some trick to avoiding it. Now I know there is - just turn off the photo and text of that scene until it's time to reveal it when it goes from lower left to lower right.
Thanks for your help.
I meant by turning off, sliding the layer's amount of visibility so that when the camera fly occurs, the layers you don't want to see are no longer on the timeline. Thanks.
