Howdy folks.

I have an animation that shows a book cover opening up. However, when the cover opens, the inside of the book cover shows a mirror of the image that is on the top of the cover. I have a plate for the inside of the cover, but I am not sure how to attach it to the cover so that the viewer see it when the cover opens up.

Put your blank layer in the same place as your cover layer, but offset by a pixel, then parent it to your cover.

Thank you sir - it was the parenting at the correct keyframe that did the trick!
