Unicron: A Simple AfterEffects Video

When I was somewhat inebriated  I had this idea that it would be fun to make an animation using paintings I made. So, I spent the morning stitching them together to get that lame idea out of my system. I drew inspiration and information from this tutorial. I successfully masked something in my use of After Effects but when I tried to mask the scene twice, either one or the other but not both would be successful.  This is a demonstration of my lack of understanding how the masking is inverted and layered to achieve what is done in the tutorial twice in one document. I will continue to experiment and learn from this experiment.

skills in use in this video: In this project, I imported layers from Photoshop Documents. To create the “footage” that I then manipulated with positioning and rotating effects.
