| In the last tutorial, we used a masking technique to simulate a curved line drawn on the screen for a short branding bumper. Now we will add the branding elements to this bumper short.|
The ebooks in the series have a common subtitle ďAll you need is a mouseĒ to reinforce the most important feature of the DIY book series, which is that no program coding is needed. This subtitle will fade in and move slowly to the left until it is next to the mouse, which will move in from the left and stop at the high point of the curved line. On the right, the company logo and url will fade in at the lowest point of the curve.
Because the short audio isnít 5 seconds in duration, it will begin playing .5 seconds after the start of the animation and last for 2 seconds. A second audio, the mouse laugh, will play at the end as the background changes. The white gradient background fades at the 3.5 second point to allow the sky background, which is also prominent on my website, to become visible. The 5 second animation short will take 3 seconds, with an additional 2 seconds on the end as a placeholder. This placeholder will be replaced with the marketing video that the bumper prefixes.
