Hi, Jake...
Glad you were able to put this technique to practical use. I think the way you used it works really well in your program. Did you do all the animations for that show?
Thanks for letting me know where to see it.
Keep up the good work.

Hi, Todd...
I just downloaded the project to make sure the buildings are there.
There are, in fact, a total of 4 x .jpg's: the background and the 3 x buildings included in the project files - it is not a .psd.
To find them, you may need to use the "Replace Footage" command and browse to the location where you've save the project.
Regards...

Where can I get the psd of the pre-masked buildings? It is missing in the project files.
