Part 2

Animation

 

Step 10

Before making the animation, add your name and/or watermark on your crea.

Look what you want to animate.

You can choose between 2 options:

In Part 1 are only the vertical lines animated.

In this part are all silver lines animated.

Whatever you decide, it's important that all layers who are not animated are merged visible.

Step 11

Close the silver line layers, you want to animate.

Activate one of the other layer and merge visible.

Layers - Duplicate - repeat 1x.

If you want to animate all silver lines, close the just merged layer and the duplicate layers and

merge the silver line layers visible.

Layers - Duplicate - repeat 1x.

Now you have 6 layers in your layer palette.

3 with the image and 3 with the silver lines.

Place above every image a silver one.

Step 12

Activate the top silver layer.

Adjust - Add/remove noise - Add noise - Gaussian - 45.

Layers - Merge - Merge down.

Activate the middle silver layer.

Adjust - Add/remove noise - Add nois - Gaussian - 55.

Layers - Merge - Merge down.

Activate the bottom silver layer.

Adjust - Add/remove noise - Add noise - Gaussian - 65.

Layers - Merge - Merge down.

Now you have only 3 layer in your layer palette.

Save your image as a PSP-file in a folder of your choice.

Step 13

Open AS.

Open the image you just saved in AS.

Edit - Select all.

Animation - Frame properties - 10.

Step 14

View - Animation.

You now can see how your animation looks.

If you are satisfied, save your crea as a gif file and you're done!

I hope you enjoyed making this tutorial :-)
