Animating Layered Images

Animating Layered Images

Animating Layered Images

I have created 20 images in photoshop which are 640x480 in size. The background is black and there is text in the middle with a sorta smoke down and to the right of it. Each image has the smoke with the text in the same place and I need to get the smoke to come towards the image and sorta get sucked into the text. Each image has the smoke coming closer with the text in the same place.I basically need to animate the layers so it apears that smoke appears to be coming towards the text. If it is still unclear let me know.
Thanks for any help

RE: Animating Layered Images

You could use the gif animator included with photoshop to run your layers in sequence and then import the gif sequence. The program is called Image Ready and can be found were your photoshop is installed on your system. If its not there reinstall and you'll be given the option to install it

RE: Animating Layered Images

Are you talking about doing a Tiff sequence?  That would playback all your layers in AE with desired effect.  Save your layers to TIFF and import them as a tiff sequence.  I have only done this once and can't remember the exact import method.  you may have to save the images as a TIFF Photoshop sequence and import into AE as such.

Hope this helps-
