Hi guys.
I have some questions about making rounded lower third.

1. I want make lower third like this gif image :

I tried different ways but I did not get any results. as you know when you want animate rounded rectangle, the rounded get distort

2. After animate From right point , i want scale it from left point to right for make circle like before.

thanks ❤

If you use a shape layer, use the Rectangle Path properties rather than the Transform properties. Set the roundness to 100, unlink the x width and height and adjust width. To keep left edge in place adjust position x coordinate by adding half of the width.

to elaborate on what K Suggested, use an expressing by linking the size to the position and add "/2" like this:

[David Mac] "and now , how to trim it for transorm it to circle like Trim Path? start to end"

not sure exactly what you mean. trim path works best for stroke and not a fill. so you can leave the stroke color and add a trim path and see if that's what you want

oh James Bond. why didn't you say so?

actually the most efficient way is probably using trim path and a stroke.

create a path with the pen tool, use stroke and round caps and set animation for:
end 0.1% (keyframe) until 100% (keyframe) - that will be the stroke drawing.
then set animation to the start parameter - 0% (keyframe) to 99.9% (keyframe)



you could also pull this off with several other ways, but this to me looks like the easiest way.

Actually that's Touchstone's logo. James Bond was just a wandering dot
