Hello experts,

Not very familiar with the shape tool and its features and in need of some help. I'm trying to create this similar effect for when the lower third enters the screen. Any idea on how its done?





- 20 seconds.

Thanks in advanced.

The heavy lifting in this is done with animated track mattes. The colored part doesn't move; you could do it with a shape or with a solid and a mask to define the dimensions.

*EDIT* : Dave you beat me to it, as usual.

One method is to use a track matte on the Lower Third.

I've approximated the reveal you've indicated in this sample file:

Thank you both for your help! Brian, how did you create the semi circles?

Made it in Illustrator, copied and pasted to a shape layer in AFX.
