Mov selected, choose Edit > Duplicate. This will create a copy of the original layer with the exact same transform parameter values (including Position and Scale) on top of the original. The duplicate layer will be selected. Move the duplicated layer to the right to create a second video inset: • You can drag it in the Composition panel, adding S after you start to drag to constrain your movements to a straight line. • Or, press p to reveal the Position property in the Timeline panel, and scrub its X Position value to constrain movement to a straight line left and right.

29 Animate the bumblebee’s Position property so that it moves from offscreen at time 00:00 to the daisy’s center at 2:15 (above and below). Make a note of the two handles (circled in red above) for the next step. Lesson 1 — BASIC ANIMATION 36 30 After creating two Position keyframes, tug on the Auto Bezier handle (left) to create a motion path that arcs across the comp (right). 30 If the Auto Bezier handle is hard to find on a busy background (see red arrow), don’t worry about it! Hold down CO (LA) and hover your cursor over the keyframe icon itself (above), then click and drag outward to pull out a visible handle (below).

Feel free to also tweak the position of both layers to get a nice arrangement, but keep them aligned vertically (see sidebar opposite for tips). 17–18 Swap in a new footage source for the duplicated layer, and scale them together in the Timeline panel. We settled on a size of 40% for both movies.
