| In this tutorial, we will continue to build a simple whiteboard video in MotionR. The next step is to draw the Bezier path that is the basis of the animation.|
You will be drawing a Bezier path that will control the movement of the hand. A duplicate of this Bezier path will be used to create the mask that will hide the graphic that is being drawn on the screen and reveal it as the arm passes over. Because the mask is created from a duplicate of the Bezier path that the hand will follow, the result is a simulation of the hand drawing on the screen.
Before we draw the Bezier path, we need to adjust the anchor point of the Hand graphic. Be default, Motion puts the anchor point in the center of the graphic. But this anchor point will be what follows the path. We don't want the center of the arm to draw on the screen. We want the tip of the pencil to draw on the screen. Let's fix this.
