So let’ get started. So the first thing I’m going to do is go to my library, Generator, Grid and Apply. This will apply the Grid. Now in my hood, I’m going to adjust the settings of my hood. I’m going to adjust the line width the background width, the background height and so let’s start with the line width and less make it about three and its looks good. And the background height will make about like this. There we go. Okay now let’s color it. Let’s make it—let’s see what color could we make it. Let’s make it green and let’s make it dark blue. Accept, okay. Now we have this Grid made here. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to select my 3D Transform Tools. I’m going to hold my Shift key OK and I’m going to rotate it by minus nine degrees on X-axis. So I’m going to hold my Shift key add the X-axis and rotate it 90 degrees as and now you can see its flat okay. So now im going to close my hood. I’m going to drag this down to the bottom of the canvas like this. Now we’re slowly getting a table top look effect okay. So now I’m going to my Properties Tab and Inspector. Go to properties okay. So now I want to put my position Y value right here to minus 360 and that will put my table top down here of the screen. So I’m just going to adjust my Grid Generator and I’m going to fill the width and the height and the position to set you know my taste. So let’s go to the generator and find out the width and the height and right here let’s do some adjusting. Let’s adjust the width and let’s just the height here and as you can see we have it coming in. Make it a little wider. Now you can’t really see all the lines so I’m going to go up here into my view and make it from normal to best and that kind makes our line a little more visible. It just wasn’t enter all the lines to save CPU usage. Okay, so now we got this table top here. So I’m going to name this group as I open up my project. I want it to name Background. Okay now I have my background group. Now I’m going to make a new group and I’m going to call this group Photo group okay. Are you with me so far. Now we’re going to our File browser and we’re going to file the photos we want to use. Let’s go to our File browser, I have a lot of mine pulled up and which one do we want to use. It really doesn’t matter. You don’t want to be too big because of CPU and stuff like that it take a little longer you know so let’s use this one right here. This apple 17 okay. Oh I mean it don’t really matter that’s just something random that I picked. I’m trying to make it really clash too much with the color of the green. We use this silver Grilled apple here okay. So I’ll let you find the photos, I’m going to take it and I’m going to drag it and drop it on the photo group and there we go. Now let’s go to our Inspector, Properties and let’s adjust the scale and size and stuff down to taste back right there and looks pretty good I guess. Now where I’m going to add a border and I’m going to use the Rectangle Tool to do that. So let’s select our photo group here. Let’s go up to our Rectangle Shapes Tool and let’s draw a little mass around, a little rectangle let’s drop it below the Grilled apple. Now we can adjust it around like so just want to make the border not to right on with but not too little either. Okay now we have this picture with little border we put on it just for a little bit of flair okay. So now I’m going to select the photo group and I’m going to do the same thing. Hold my Shift key and I’m going to rotate it 90 degrees towards flat like that so can now both over my flat on the X-axis. Now let’s add a camera, add a New Camera, Switch to 3D, yes. Now if I had a camera, I’m going to still go to my Active Camera button here and select to right. And now we have everything you can see in my camera this little bit white line right here is the picture and this is our table top. Okay I’m going to hit Shift-Z and that’s going to fit everything in the campus okay. So now let’s use our vertical two wide split here. So let’s go appear to our views and make it a too wide split and make our bottom one Active Camera. Now you can see with our front view in our Active Camera view okay. Select your bottom view, hit Shift-Z to fit in there and you can select the top. View and hit Shift-Z to fit in there okay. Now I’m going to select the rough view, you can see when I select each one of it, it put say yellow border around which one is active. So select it to rough view which will be the one on top okay. Now I’m going to select the camera and I want to tilt the camera down and I’m going to move it forward a little. So I’ve got the camera selected, I’m going to grab my rotate here and I’m going to rotate it down like this and I’m going to move the camera forward. Okay, so now you can see what we were looking at here and how we’re looking at it. I’m going to make my play range about three seconds long so I boom to hit my background here and hit Command option O and that will make my play range set my play range. Now I’m going to select the photo group and I’m going to move it, grab the transform Control-C, I’m going to move it back. As you can see in the bottom view there the active camera its moving as I move. I’m going to move it back behind the camera or just not really behind the camera, just out of the camera view okay. So here we can see it there out of the camera’s view okay. Like I’ve done before I’ve already set my three second player range. This is where you can start playback if you want too. So select the group which we have already have that selected and I’m going to add a Throw Behavior. So I’m going to start playback and go to add Behavior, Basic Motion, Throw. Now that added the Throw Behavior. Now I’m going to come down here and I’m going to Throw Velocity and turn down my triangle and in my Z. I’m going to make it about mine as 1000. Okay now we can see our photo right here is being thrown across the screen okay. You can’t see in our bottom view because its not the one that’s selected. Okay now I’m going to add another behavior. Simulations, Gravity. Now you can see our pictures slowly starting to fall and I’m going to crank the gravity up so it’s the table real fast. So let’s crank our gravity up here way up to about 230 maybe a little more than that. There’s 280 and then 600 right there, it looks like it’s going to hit the table pretty quick. Now I’m going to my properties tab. I’m going to right click on position Y and I’m going to select Clamp. You’re not going to position Y right here. Now what Clamp is going to do is going to stop it from falling okay and we’re going to tell it where we want it to stop falling inside the Clamp behavior. Now at the Clamp Act we’re going to make it just mean okay. Are you with me so far? Now on the minimum number we’re going to make it minus 360 what if you remember is the number we use to position our floor before. So it should be in the same position. So now as you can see a photo comes down and hits and keep still in that way because it’s the Clamp right here to stop dropping.
