- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Chris Converse, and in this course, I'm going to show you how to create a graphic that can be used as a sprite sheet for web animations. An animated sprite consists of a large graphic that moves within a smaller web container, creating the illusion of a frame-based animation from a single graphic. I'll show you techniques for using smart objects in Photoshop to create and modify frames of your sprite, create frame guides to help you properly align the artwork, and even apply non-destructive effects to your animations. Lastly, we'll publish and test our sprites with a script I'm making available to all Lynda.com members, which includes simple settings for modifying animation playback within a web browser.
So I hope this course sounds interesting to you, and if so, let's get started.
