Recently, we’ve been practicing our animation skills ever since our workshops from last week. We’ve been experimenting with frame by frame animation and creating GIFs with the help of Adobe Photoshop. Before the workshops, I had no idea that it was possible to animate with software that is most commonly used for image manipulation. Pictured below is an example of an animation that I produced in Photoshop:
Using our new and improved animation skills, we need to create looping stop-motion animations of over 12 frames for this assignment. The subject of our animations can be anything that follows the theme of “cycle”, as long as it’s taken with a video camera or DSLR.
Additionally, since I have an iPod Touch, I can download Stop motion Animation Maker Pro and create my stop motion animation that way.
I’ve always loved watching and creating animation so I look forward to carrying out this particular assignment.
