Create unique animations and animated videos in Photoshop that can be used alone or in combination with other media
This easy to follow course will help you make original, custom animations using Adobe Photoshop that look professional and can be 100% used as stand-alone movies (without needing any other software) or in combination with other video, animation, and multimedia software programs for a full range of effects and purposes.
In this course you will learn my very favorite animation and video rotoscoping techniques to create powerful multimedia projects ranging from laughably simple (think stick figures waving) to more sophisticated and complex (such as my own award-winning series of films screened internationally in film festivals and online since 2002.)
In this course you'll learn step by step how to:
*Harness the power of Photoshop to create simple or complex frame by frame animations, with or without using Photoshop's timeline.
*Easily turn a regular video into a stop-motion animated video by making simple frame rate adjustments.
*Apply a full range of effects to your video to create animated elements or a stand-alone animation even if you CAN'T DRAW.
*Coax Photoshop to animate objects and layers for you (without having to draw anything) by making position, size, and opacity changes, to name just a few possibilities.
*Craft multiple effects at once to create more complex final animations by using multiple layers.
*Capture complex movements by bringing in video, drawing right over it, and (optionally) throwing the video guide out so all that is left is your new animation with its sophisticated movements. (That's rotoscoping!)
What are the requirements?
*Nothing special is needed before taking this course except for an open mind and a willingness to play and experiment with Photoshop's animation tools. That said, those who have at least a basic familiarity with Photoshop will be the most comfortable getting started.
*Free 30 days trials of Photoshop are available from Adobe's website.
What am I going to get from this course?
*Over 20 lectures and 1.5 hours of content!
*Harness the power of Photoshop to make simple or complex 2-D animations.
*Animate and draw directly over video clips to enhance or completely transform them.
*Access a full array of public domain and royalty-free still image and video resources to use in your own unique projects.
*Capture and animate complex movements with ease by using video as your guide.
*Create stunning animations and video/animation combos that can be exported as stand-alone movies or brought into other programs to be combined with other 2D and 3D multimedia sources.
