Animated Gif Anatomy

Like the caption says, if you have CS, ImageReady isn't necessary.

All you need is a PSD with layers that have animated elements.

Correction on the wording when you click the right corner of the animation window. It is MAKE FRAMES FROM LAYERS

There is some way to use the same background and use the alpha to just animate over the same background but I donb't know how to do that.

I always have to duplicate the background and merge the changing animating element into it.

If you figure out how to make the back ground always show with a sprite overlay. let me know .


I figured it out. You select the base layer and then click MATCH FRAME ACROSS ANIM

I'll check that out, Ellis. Thanks! You'll know that I "got it" if my avatar suddenly pops its claws (or something).

This is the dream sequence in Eragon. It's in my reel now. Did you go down for that Full Moon party Scott? Any results?
