How To Make An Animation
- You could do your animations in either Image Ready 2.0 from Photoshop5.5 or Webpainter.
- Then think of what you want to animate and then sketch it out
- Say you wanted to do an animation on a bouncing ball.
- First you draw a circle with the circle tool, and color it, and it should show up in the cell. strip.
- Then in the next cell you make the circle a little bit more higher than it was in the first cell, then color it in.
- Then you make the circle low like in the first cell, and you color it and keep going up until you get the number of cells you want, maybe say up to 6 cells.
- Then when you think you are done, you can make your animation much smother, you can duplicate each cell about 4 times, so 6cells times 4 duplicated cells would equal to 24 cells.
- Then you play your animation and see if you like it keep it, but if you want to add more just add.
- When you save your animation to your disk or wherever you save it as a animated.gif, why, because if you don't it will take up more space.
My sample animation
I showed the oil running out because I was trying to show a non-renewable resource.
I made the oil look like it is sucking down by just erasing some parts of it and filled it with a yellowish-white color. I keep doing this until it was empty, like no more oil. I also had to make the oil spurting out. Each time the oil went down, the spurting of the oil went down.
