So as you can see if you want to import the certified, as you can see, there is a composition and footage, just the truth composition. Leah says that's true Slayer size. Then you have to hit. Okay, so let's a crook you can see off our lives, but if you're doing consider t lose a resolution. But if you at this if you click on this, I couldn't, uh, if you're not lose reserve shin. So I'm going to admit you because you can see off the sun. Uh, this sun, I'm going to admit it. Or so let's start admitting this thesis on else directed. So if you want to admit this, the sun if and click on this icon it this so look to hide this height, other layers, so I can admit it can admit this sort only. So let's hide a delay. Us, as you consider of this sort honoree. So I'm going to add a background so you can see what you are doing. This right background of Tito. Okay, Have to move it down and I can see leave soon. We're going to be using this effect. Quote assist abandoned to have two such it in effect on visit it called system bandit have to come in drug it only earlier. So as you can see these you cannot see the part of this lives is because this is a bend itself to point. If you take this and you can see tickle come is now showing up. And this on district this point. So you have to put at this point in the light press, as you can see, it can if to put its rights here and take the sun. But it's right here in the letter press. So on six appendage effect, you can see of bands start and and in a place it so Ah, if you're on this for you, you can see combat this a live in the very want.

So I don't like out this hostess looking, so let's like it is. Only Griffin is so as you can see, I'm not going toe. I'm going to take this and off. It's late here so you can look this brunt by taking disc, Implement copy key frames and conserve the conserve e conserve the can use this technique through this. If live in front WTO, continue Conserve a couple disc difference, you know, to keep it waving. Concert business So that's it. Privy Inciarte with think, live So as you can cities these men spit in this lives I'm goingto and do so, you mystic I'm going to copy described him and see how this a can happen Control v So that's you have to take this key frames and Mi Elena tricked.

So let's review as you can see now it is looking good So this I can make this a living she a majority son and take this okay area, Make it rectus. So as you can see a using this technique toe copy and paste, this gift limit is taking time and it is not good. Like if you have a long, long composition, you can not going a copy or this way. I think so. In the next video I was trying out toe. If we have toe create a Loop Inc with it, we've a expression concerns, so I see in the next listen. 4. Waving leaves animation 3: So as we have learned in the last video of two, been to this. Ah, this live with This is a bandage of London. We cannot make a I cannot make this looping if equipping discreet from it is not going to look good.

I'm going to add expression toe to look This a waving live so toe at expression expression is the simple court you can add in this after victim do they thinks cannot do so. I'm going toe if your toe add a expression you cannot use is you have toe What is is if you're to add if you toe expression we cannot at the expression on is Yeah, different. Some goingto and do you don't need a is here, Dan. So go toe toe, right. Expression enough to 50. Have toe hit out on your keyboard and click on the amounts. Then you concede we have these expression so I'm going to do to discern and right the expression to use. So you have to a search if to write loop, loop out as you can see us a creek loop, you can see it. This blew part to practice Lou party and I have to add this on after, right, Pink pony, pink punk. So you conceit and click on it. So this is the expression of go to your son. Are you provided it? Then they I provide some expression contrary, can use in admission in a existence First have to grant a seat in exercise fights. I provided expression complex to provide the expression for that. So let's say it's privy and see how our own mission look As you can see this expression, it is look good. And it doesn't take time to admit this. I think tree so the detectives and put it Ah, uh make this. Listen, I wanted it to look good. So I'm going toe and mitt and it, uh, it's and hide this on is so it's it's please Here it's offensive. The sprint is banning. So I'm going toe. I'm going to admit this one too, or you can practiced by admitting this on.
