Throughout this class, you will learn how to use the video timeline in Photoshop to create beautiful hand-drawn animations.
Who is this class for? This class is suitable for all Photoshop users. You don't need to be an expert, but some basic knowledge of the interface, the tools, the brushes and layers will be helpful.
What will we cover? Together, we'll have a close look at the video timeline and the essential tools needed to create hand-drawn animations. You will learn:
These very useful skills can be used for all kinds of animation projects. Whether you work on personal or professional projects, whether your style is cartoon, realistic or abstract, Photoshop can be your main animation tool.
So for anybody who loves Photoshop and whether you're a pro or a wannabe animator, this class is essential to get started!
For the class project, you will animate something coming out of the magic box. It could be anything, something simple and funny like a frog leaping out, or some bubbles, a flower, a small fish, or anything else that comes to mind.
Class Resources: I have attached a PSD file of the magic box animation. Download it, open it and start animating! :)
I recommend that you try to keep it short and sweet. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
