Creating Basic Animations in Photoshop w/ Sarah Fuller
Tuesday, January 26th , 7 pm, Online via Zoom
Free to everyone in the community

Creating Basic Animations in Photoshop will walk participants through the steps to animate a two-dimensional figure using the puppet warp tool and the timeline window in Photoshop. Participants will learn how to isolate a figure from a neutral background, how to use a layers to create frame animation and how to set pins on the puppet mesh to create realistic movements. There will be time in class for participants to workshop their animations, with the opportunity to virtually share their results with other participants at the end of the session.

Technology requirements: Participants will need access to a computer with Adobe Photoshop and should come prepared to the workshop with a photograph of an object or figure to animate. The object or figure should be
photographed against a neutral background (such as a white wall).

Please download and install Adobe Photoshop prior to the workshop. If you are uncertain about your technology please get in touch prior to the workshop.
