In this chapter I'll be covering two related, but fundamentally independent topics, puppet warp and animation. The Puppet Warp command allows you to take an extracted image, such as a person that's been masked away from a scene, and then you can lay down pins and move things around. For example, I'll use my arm to demonstrate. I could lay a pin down here at the elbow and one at the hand and then move the hand pin. And that would move the hand with respect to the elbow just as you're seeing right now. We're going to use puppet warp to animate the wings of a bird, and then we'll take that flapping bird and turn it into a sequence of frames.
And then we'll add some animated text as well, and we'll export the whole thing as a QuickTime movie and as an animated GIF file. For those of you who love doing goofy stuff to photographic images. I'll be darned if I've ever seen anything like the following movies.
