How to draw a shape?
on Mar 12, 2010 at 1:32:04 pm

Hi,

I have a transparent image with logo, and would like it draw form start point to end point. What's the best way to do it?

Draw a shape over top of it with outline and no fill, use a write-on behavior to animate it, and apply it as an image mask to your logo.

I don't know, if I understood right. I have to draw a simple rectangle with no fill, but with outline, use write on behavior, add image mask for my logo and then drag and drop my rectangle to mask source?

You want it to look like a figure 8 (your logo) is being hand drawn on the screen. In stead of a rectangle use the Bezier or B-spline or paint tool to trace your orange figure 8. Then do the following. Make sure the color of the Bezier line is white. That will make the white a luma stencil so when all is said and done the white is not seen. For a quick example you may want to check out my Creating a Hologram tutorial. In the middle it will explain image masks. Best of luck and hope this helps.

Still can't get a result. Maybe you could do small project with example, how it should look?

Here is a sample project: 633_writeonsample.motn.zip

I really recommend you check out my Motion Training DVD, it thoroughly covers this and a lot more. Keep in mind I'm biased. Best of luck.

My Mac says cannot be opened made in a later version, must be opened in Motion4, and your link at Apple Motion.net says page not found

Cheers
