hi, i would like to know how i could make the waves and the egyptian hyeroglyphics move (the waves will move in the right side and the hyeroglyphics at the left side) and i would like it to be an infinite loop
If you could link me a video tutorial (it can be an after effects or sony vegas tutorial too if you want to, as long as it can be done with photoshop/sony vegas/after effects as i need to export the animation to sony vegas to make an outro out of it).

It is certainly possible directly in Photoshop using "Tweening". Can I ask what version of Photoshop you are using?

Have a quick look here - Tweening I am not saying it is the best tutorial but the info is there.

I am about to retire - but if it doesn't make any sense to you I will sort out a tutorial for you tomorrow.

Cheers

Most types of moving animation can be done in Photoshop.

Here is an example of a very complex animated GIF I did back in 2013.

If I understood how you wanted to animate your example above, I might be able to explain how to do it. I don't understand what you mean by,
the waves will move in the right side and the hyeroglyphics at the left side
How do you want it to move? Left, right, up, or down?

Sorry, i meant to say that i would like the hyeroglyphics to pop out from Spearus from both sides in an infinite loop, not to make the hyeroglyphics go to the left.
I just realized that its cooler that way
Thanks in advance for your help

Again I truly apologize, but I don't know what you mean. I really want to try and explain how to make this type of GIF, but if I don't understand what you want, it becomes a little difficult.

Does anyone else think they understand what the OP (Badr) wants?

I use the Video Timeline to create complex GIFs and not the Frame Animation. Here is a good video explaining the process.
Watch this one first.

Watch this one scond.

I think the OP want the parts I have marked in red scrolled left and right respectively so it looks like they are emerging from the word in the middle.

No problem, I understand now.

The first thing I did was separate everything in the middle to it's own layer and duplicate them.

I created two groups containing the right and left sides.
Note that I also added layer masks to the groups to hide the other sides hieroglyphic from overlapping.

Then I just used the Video Timeline to animate the movement of the Hieroglyphics as explained in the Tutorial videos I linked you with.

It's hard for me to tell if your understanding the process, let me know if you need any more explanation.

Yo, thank you so much that was really helpful,didnt expect the procedure to be that easy though as i never touched the timeline in photoshop.

Thanks to fred too for his time giving me tutorials and explanations.
