Thinking and practise, AE Keyframes & Pre-Comps.

Constraining a shape to an axis…

Here i animated a square on a axis. To do this I turned on the position and dragged the shape across each time I moved along the timeline.

Next I constrained the shape to straight lines by changing these settings to linear.

Making sure time is disrupted between pints equally..

By selecting the “Rove across time” key it makes sure your shape always moves with the same amount o time between each point. Image

Pre-comps…

Changing the time…

To pre-compose I duplicated the shape and moved it down the timeline. By changing the size I then created this effect…

I then followed the same process to create multiple shapes.
