Animation - Frame-by-Frame and Layers

Today during lesson we learnt to how to create 'frame-by-frame' animations and how to 'layer' animations'.

To create a frame by frame animation:

We had to create a new file:

  1. I selected the Frame 1 of Layer 1. This is where the animation will start.

  2. I then created a graphic by using the drawing tools - Brush tools.

  3. I then selected the next frame on Layer 1 and create a second keyframe

  4. To complete your frame-by-frame animation sequence, repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you've built the motion you want.

How to use layers:

  1. Select the background layer on the Timeline and click the Insert Layer button to create a new, empty layer.

  2. Double-click the name of the new layer so the layer's name becomes editable.
