| In the last tutorial, we started a new MotionR project from the Blank Motion Project template. As in Photoshop, we will build our project from the bottom up in the Layers pane. At this point, this project has a transparent bottom, as we can see from the checkerboard pattern on the Canvas.|
As we look at the Layers panel, we can see that our empty project has a Project and a Group layer. When we have the Project layer selected, we can control the properties for the overall project.
Our first step will be to add a bottom to the project. Donít confuse this with a background layer that will be the first of many layers that we will add to the Layers pane. These layers will contain the design elements for our project. At this point, we are still working with the project properties. Think of this as the foundation for our project.
To set a bottom for the project, we will use the Inspector to make a change to the project properties.
