Hi everyone, it is time for a class project. I want you to create some Parallax. In your 13 Video folder, under Class Project, I've got two options for you. An easy one and a hard one. So I want you to do two different things, so version 1 here is the sign. Mask out the sign, and then using Content Aware Fill, remove the sign. 

You've got one layer that just has a sign on it, one that just had the clouds, and then animate the Scale and Position, or maybe just the Scale. Up to you, but the version 2, the second one here, there's kind of three main levels, there's the person, which I feel might be tied into this. It could be four, it could be this grass, the person, the mountain, and the sky. You can decide, three will be fine. But these are all going to be moving at different speeds. 

Zooming in, zooming out, maybe panning left to right. This mask is going to be a harder one to do because this man is a little blurry. Once you created and rendered your Parallax - this one's a little harder to share - so either post a link that you have uploaded to Dropbox. A link to your mp4, or maybe use Google Drive or something else. OneDrive, there's lots of them out there. So just a link to it, or you can upload it to YouTube or Vimeo, and send us the link there. Love to see what you make, especially of that second version. All right, get going. I will see you in the next video.
