How to Create an Animation In Adobe Image Ready : Putting Frames on a Timeline in Adobe Image Ready


Hi, I’m Gary for Expert Village. Now that
we’ve overlaid our images we’re going to create the animation effect and we’re going to use
a animation time line. So now we have our image, and we’re going to go ahead and open
up our animation window and we do that by clicking on the, again on the menu bar window
and click on animation and we see another window opens up. This window is going to be
our time line. This is where we’re going to put our frames, and this is where the transition,
we’re going to be able to control the transition between the frames and that’s going to create
our animations. So, we’re going to first select the first frame in our time line. Now the
first frame over here which is selected is the first layer that was in our layers window.
So I’m, I want to start the animation with a plain closed man and I want it to make the
transition to the mask. So I want to change that first frame. In order to do that, I can
just go ahead and turn the mask layer off in the layers window. And now once that, the
layer is blocked or it’s not being seen, and I did that by turning off, there’s a little
eye over here in that first box and I just turn that eye off and that means it’s not
going to be viewed. And now I see that, that the, in my main picture, the other layer of
the clown mask does not appear and also the first frame in my animation window is going
to be the plain closed man. So that’s going to be the frame that I want to start with.
And, now I want to create a second frame which is going to be the mask and in order to do
that I first want to duplicate my first frame. We do that by clicking on the icon on the
bottom which is a little, looks like a little piece of paper flapped over, we see the little
menu over here that says duplicate, duplicates current frame. I can go ahead and click on
it. Now I have two of the same frame here which is not going to be much of a transition
for our animation but I can go ahead and change that second frame by going back to my layers
window and I’m going to go ahead and turn on the mask again. And now, both layers are
viewable but in my main window, in my animation, in the, first, in the picture we see that
that’s going to be the layer that’s viewed, it’s the layer on top. And also in my frames
window, and it’s also going to be the layer that’s on top. So now, I have two frames here,
one of the plain closed man and one of the mask and now I’m ready to create the transition
effect.
