With the Selection tool active, click the gray rectangle and drag its left side so it spans the screen. If you don’t like how it obscures your title, drag its layer down in the Essential Graphics panel. Right-click a line’s layer and select Duplicate to add more lines. It’s a good habit to rename each new layer by right-clicking it and choosing Rename. Reposition each new element by changing its Position or Rotation setting. Adjust the item’s Opacity slider to add a see-through effect.

Zoom out in the Program Monitor. Position the playhead where you want the animation to end. Adjust the position, opacity, scale, and so on of every element so it’s exactly where you want it. For every property you adjust, click the property’s icon to create a keyframe at that value.
