The popularity of the animated GIF is on the rise, especially on social networking websites. Clients may ask to use final graphics not only as an HD video but also as an animated GIF. In this movie, author Eran Stern walks you through his preferred workflow to create an animated GIF using Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop.
- Now it turns out that this client wants to…use the final piece not only as an HD video,…but also as an animated GIF.…This is a common task these days,…as the old GIF format is gaining more popularity,…especially on social networks.…So I want to show you my preferred workflow…to create it using Premiere Pro and Photoshop.…Before we'll export this spot as an animated GIF,…and by the way the correct way of saying it…is "animated jif", but anyhow,…I wanted to add an additional camera tracking animation.…
And just to make sure that the spot is looping correctly,…because this is the nature, of course, of GIF animations.…All right, so I'm just going to enable…the adjustment layer that we have over here.…Currently this is an empty layer, because we have…deleted the real smart motion blur effect…in the previous movie.…And I want to add to it the Transform effect.…So I'm just going to start to type "transform",…and here it is under the Distort.…It's a real-time effect, which is great,…so I'm just going to apply it over here,…
This course works through real-world scenarios, showcasing impressive type effects used to create visually stunning scenes. To make type integrate seamlessly with the footage, Eran demonstrates how to use tracking, rotoscoping, particles, distortions, camera effects, and more. Compositing is performed in Premiere Pro as the main editing hub. In addition to Photoshop and After Effects, the course also explores a PixelSquid plugin, a Bounce Pack set of transitions, ReelSmart Motion Blur, a Continuum Complete set of 3D objects, and some text design templates of Titler Pro 4. These third-party plugins are introduced to complement your workflow while keeping time spent outside the editing interface minimal. This course is designed to equip you with the skills needed to create promos, trailers, and openers that exhibit superb use of 3D titles.
