Firstly, I'm not entirely sure whether this belongs here on in Graphic Design, so, mods, please move it as necessary. Right. I have a challenge on my hands. I have an assignment due in on Friday to re-create a 30 second title sequence of a film of my choice in Adobe After Effects. I chose Singin' in the Rain. I am pretty incompetent with A.E. because I didn't take much time to try and learn it, BUT I am good at picking things up if they're explained slowly. Okay, let's cut to the chase: For part of my idea I want to make this picture: become this picture: by way of opening like a normal umbrella. Up and out, type thing. Does anyone know how I could do this? If I could learn/do this in 3 days and if it's even possible? And if nobody knows, can they point me in the direction of some help? I can always change my idea to something lame, but that umbrella took me a while in Photoshop and I don't want to waste it.
