Pffh, i do experimented with both normal and video layer transfer.

somehow i enjoy more to draw each animation's frame in normal layer(s) then export them to video layer, control the FPS, then... :iconimhappyplz:

because i can see each layer's thumb, and which
layer i should copy for a cycle. For fun, i also
tried to use other non-animation program and trace my scanned sketch
in many drawing layers.

I love PainttoolSAI for its stroke stabilizer. :love:

Hahaha I feel like a retard. I spent about an hour trying to understand how you animated the hair moving and other movements. After a hour from trying, I decided to say, "let me just ask him." Then I read the comments above and that answered my question compltely. I'm so glad photoshop has the video layer feature. When I first started playing around and looking at Photoshop animation tutorials online, I was thinking to myself "There has to be a better way of animating in PS without having to use so many layers" and bam I learn today about video layers. YAyyyyyy!!!! :D I may have a question tomorrow for you or technically today, but I really need to get some rest now.

I'm glad Photoshop has video layers, too.

Good to hear your question got cleared up. I don't mind answering any more if you've got them.

Okay here goes my question. In your BG folder, in your Backwall folder, when you did the motion blur to the smart object, how did your go about doing that. I guess I should get a little more specific....ummmm... lets see, did you you duplicate all the layers you used to create the back wall, merge those layers, turn the merged layers into a smart object and then add the motion blur once you opened up the smart object?

You're very close in your guess. :)

I duplicated the group and converted it into a smart object, from there I applied a CS4 only feature: smart filters. Smart filters allow you to apply filter effects to smart object layers in a non-permanent way, meaning that you can always go back in and adjust the effect. :)

I didn't have to open up the smart object to apply the effect; that was done directly to the layer after I converted it.

Also, I didn't have to merge the layers to convert them to a smart object. They get bundled together if I highlight the group and convert them into a smart object.

Hope that answers your question. It was a good one. :D

You may have to flatten some layers, but I made the file so that it's very organized.

Feel free to ask me any questions when you crack into it.

Change the Layer Comp to "Animation [inked]" if Photoshop is flipping out on you. That's the least intense out of all the stages this piece has.

what kind of layers are those layers with the film on them
Reply
:iconthatld:
thatLD Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Those are video layers. Without them it isn't possible to do frame-by-frame animation on one layer.

You can make one by going to "Layer -> Video Layers -> New Blank Video Layer"

how do you edit them?

You work on them like a regular Photoshop layers. The only difference is that the contents are tied to single frames in the Animation Timeline.

Draw something on frame zero, then advance to frame one and see what happens. The contents disappear because you're on a new frame.

That's all there is to it!

Now that you know you have the power to do the same (if you've got Photoshop CS3 Extended or better, of course)! :D
