Project: Create an animation in Photoshop
 
I’ve had the opportunity to use this process before in another #adobegen class, Digital Imaging and I’m glad we had a chance to revisit.
 
For this assignment, I’ve decided to animate a Hulu/Ukulele player:
1.  I found an image a ukulele player and island with palm tree rom a clipart service (shools.iclipart.com)
2.  I exported the image as a .wmf  in order to separate the image into different parts using Adobe Illustrator,
            1.  Image without the arms and ukuele
            2.  Ukulele by itself
            3.  The right arm
            4.  The left arm
            5.  And, the original image
3.  I exported the images from Illustrator as PNGs and then imported them into Photoshop as separate layers
4.   I then used the Puppet Wrap with thumb tacks to ‘push/pull’ the image without arms into two position, ‘Hulu
      left’ and ‘Hulu right’.
5.  And, I moved the left and right arms into separate positions also.
6.  I set the timing for each frame to .2 sec and made sure to return the animation to the original position
     between each movement. 
 
The GIF is a little jerky.  I’m hoping that the next program will allow us to use keyframes and tweening to smooth out the animation.
