Well Guys, looks like I have a little problem. I do not know what’s going on but it looks to be giving me troubles—Loading, Please Wait. No I’m just kidding guys. This is going to be a quick little motion tutorial to show you how to replicate this little Loading, Please Wait sign. It could be good to do for videos or transitions or web pages or just a good little emblem if you want to imitate the Mac like when you are booting up or loading up a professional application you get this little loading please wait symbol. If you want to incorporate that into your works on how to imitate the Mac just to be different. I’m going to show you how to make this little emblem here okay? So let’s stop it.
Let’s create a new file; a new project. Okay, the first thing that we are going to do is go up in here and create a square shape. So let’s make it pretty big, like this and we are going to go over here and make the fill color a light gray like so right there okay? Now, let’s go to our library, go to our shapes folder under shapes there would be a little peel; select it and apply it. Now we have this little peel and we can adjust this scale and stuff and later or now, it’s up to you. Let’s go into properties and let’s open the scale and we scale it down a lot and fatten it up a little bit by scaling it in the Y. Okay, now we have this little round peel so what we are going to do is make sure its selected and we’re going to go up here and we’re going to hit Replicate.
Now we have this replicator and we have this funky looking pattern that comes up. We’ll be in our replicators tab so we are going to go into shape and make it a circle. Under arrangement we’re going to make it outlined like so, okay. Now under radius, I’m going to make it about 172, points, I’m going to make it about 10 and make sure I click the align angle and that will turn it into a circle for me. Now the angle, I’m going to make it about 95. Now as you can see what kind of shape we’re getting here okay. So it’s going down to make our scale here about 45, like so. Okay now we have our little circle. Now we need to make it blink. So make sure your replicator is selected, so to add behavior, replicator; sequence replicator and this will throw up your sequence replicator parameters. Under the parameter of add, select color and under the color, select this part to make it a dark gray like that right there. Okay, we are going to sequence it through from 2 to through, we’re going to make our spread about three and we’re going to make our loop about 4 and we are going to change our ink condition to warp or wrap. And now when I play this back, you can see, we have our Loading, Please Wait symbol for the Mac.
Now if you want to scale that down you could you can go back there several ways as you could scale down the whole group of you’d like towards really small like this and then you just select your rectangle and then make your rectangle bigger or you could just scale down your replicator and leave your rectangle in the back the same size. This would stop it from making your rectangle so huge. Okay now when I play it, as you can see, we have our little Loading, Please Wait Mac symbol. So this is how you do it, Yes it can be faked to any PC fan boys out there are trying to convince you that their Macs locking up, it can be faked but I just wanted to show you, this is something you enjoy Mac and you and you want to imitate Mac on some of your videos and you’re going to have to make people wait on your website or anything, you can say Loading, Please Wait, Air Emission. Or you could just do this to put it a lot of things just to kind of make it unique. So that’s how you do the little Loading, Please Wait symbol for booting up your Mac and I hope you’ve enjoyed it and got a crack out of it. See you next time guys.
