Sample text

Position this new movie above the Atomic and Cafe title layers (at the top of the layer stack). mov at this time. ț Set its Blending Mode to Add. ț With the movie still selected, press Command+Option+B (Control+Alt+B) to set the work area to the duration of the movie, and RAM Preview. The particles build from the center out, creating a horizontal energy whorl. Notice that this movie has a built-in “fade up” as the particles gain momentum, and a natural “fade down” as the particles dissipate, so there is no need to add Opacity keyframes.

To make the waves hit the beats of music as far as our final composite is concerned, you’ll need to slide the layer back in time by about 20 frames: 56 Project complete: The final Timeline window. The Radio Waves solid is reduced in Opacity and moved earlier in time to start at 05:10. Connect ț Hit 9 to move to time 09:00, where the third wave starts to trigger. Slowly drag the layer bar for Radio Waves_solid to the left (earlier in time) until you see the wave appear over the top of the Atomic title.

By going a little past the downbeat at 06:00, the atoms will continue scaling as the main title builds on, adding more interest. This also gives you a bit of “handle” to fade the atoms out. (On a real job, you might think of little touches like that later. ) ț Make sure the My_Atoms_precomp layer is still selected. Press Home to return to time 00:00, press S to twirl down Scale, and turn on the keyframe stopwatch for Scale. Enter (or scrub to) a value of around 15% so the first symbol is small but still readable.
