This is a 59-second animation I put together using Adobe After Effects. If you understand Flash, then you will understand the concept of dishing out keyframes across a timeline. After Effects, for those who don’t know the program, is an animation/movie-maker for advanced learners who wish to create quality movies and graphics. It’s perfect for animating digital paintings straight out of Photoshop, and has a lot of the same tools.
Unfortunately, as I wanted to do more with the painting, this program eats a lot of hard drive. So if you have 40 GB, say goodbye to at least 10-15 or more per file, and then some every time you save! I actually had to uninstall because I feared I wouldn’t have a drive after I did this one!
