What we had covered so far:

  • We had created this project from scratch
    • Created a door frame
    • Added a door and decoration
    • Added an Image to appear when door opens
    • Animated the door opening and closing using Timeline transformation

Step 2, Separate a Layer to hide the text initial position

  • We can start the text from outside the image but it would be more fancy to let it start from the middle of the screen through the opening door. You can also start it from outside the image and synchronize its opacity to be 100% at the door entrance. All these are different ways. Based on practice separating the image to 2 layers and passing the text between them is more efficient.
  • We shall start by making a rectangular selection including the right side of the door frame as in Figure 2-1.
  • Since the door frame and background are on Different layers,
    1. Select the frame layer from the layers panel (You can reach layers panel by clicking F7), then ctrl+J to take this part of the frame into a new layer
    2. Then Select the Background layer and click ctrl+J again
    3. Select the 2 new layer by clicking on one of them, then hold ctrl and click the other one. Then right click any of them and select merge layers as in Figure 2-2
    4. Ensure that the new formed layer is on top of the frame and background as in Figure 4-3, other wise drag it on top of them, you can call it cover layer
