FIRE & ANIMATION

The Challenge

This is a more open thread than usual because I am not fully sure on what versions of photoshop allows animation.

Ok challenge 1 is to create an animation using photoshop Icould not find many tutorials on this subject so created 1 just for this purpose please see link below and watch in HD for best results. The animation can be anything from a short cartoon to an Avatar or sig but try and keep it below 4MBs so it does not make the thread slow. This must be a GIF file.

Part 2 of the Challenge is to create an Image based on fire as I love fire this can be (hint) a fire portrait, typography hand painted fire it can be anything as long as fire is the theme

Bonus Challenge is to create a Fire based animation

I am hoping with the 2 subjects with a wide variety of possibilities that this thread should keep busy until next weeks challenge.

Everybody may enter it is just for fun and to get us all interacting with each other

Here is the basic animation tutorial


Here is the fire text tutorial

I think you can still animate with previous versions you just dont have the puppet warp tool but you can still do it with other tools

I have CS3 extended, and I at least know that there is some kind of 3D thing in it, and I have seen somewhere on some dropdown menu something about animation, maybe, I think, lol. To tell ou the truth, I´m scared to death of poking around in those things I know absolutley notning about, I´m afraid I´m going to crash photoshop completely if I start messing with them. lol.

Great intro!

And good tutorial.

I know that's kinda cheating cause it's been made weeks ago but i like it and it's "fire". And posting AW animations would be cheating too i think. So just this one from old ones.

Cheat Cheat! Loved it when you made it; still do! :mrgreen:

Mr. Hoogleman, that is a great set of tutorials you did. :thumbsup: I even got to where I could understand that limey accent :rofl:.

I'm sure it's going to take watching a few times to get this down at all, but I'm anxious to get started. Don't expect results too soon.

So when do you add the "animating fire" video? :devilish: :clap:

no one's got the PS gurus brushes to spare? i have this (dumb) idea in my head that will satisfy a newbie like me :p
anyone, know why my animate Gifs arent working? i've got the frames all up and whatnot and i've played through it enough times but when i save it as a gif it's just a static image?
