Learn how to create traditional hand-drawn animation in Adobe Photoshop.
- Hi, I'm Dermot O'Connor. Welcome to my course, Animating in Photoshop. One of the best-kept secrets in Adobe Photoshop is the fact that you can use it for animation. And because many people are already familiar with Photoshop, this means it's possible to get results fairly quickly, because the learning curve is easy. Although the animation feature is quite basic, if you use it cleverly, it's possible to create really amazing scenes. I've used Photoshop's animation features for many of my courses in the library, as well as for major clients, like Alan Parsons of the Alan Parsons Project. I used Photoshop to create the ink drawing animations from his music video, "As Lights Fall." So if you're tired of fiddling around with overly complex animation software, or if you just want to take one of your drawings and make it move, this is the course for you. So let's get started.
This course was created by Dermot O' Connor. We are pleased to offer this training in our library.
