Animation in LiveMotion 2

Animation in LiveMotion 2

Animation in LiveMotion 2

I didn't have a problem importing a set of layered Illustrator DRAWINGS into LiveMotion 2 and using Object --> Convert Into --> Sequence to have LiveMotion create an animation frame for each Illustrator layer.

On the other hand, when I tried to do the same thing with .jpg PHOTOGRAPHS placed in Illustrator layers and exported to LiveMotion, I got an empty frame on the LiveMotion work area. But if I imported a single photo image from Illustrator, it did show up on the LiveMotion work area.

Am I missing something? Is there some reason why layered photos don't import but layered drawings do? Is there a different way to animate the photos in LiveMotion to work frame by frame--for example, by creating the frame sequence after each photo has been imported into LiveMotion?

Thanks for your help! Let me know if my explanation needs clarification.

Try importing a layered .psd file.

Thanks, Pixelchik!

That was exactly what I needed.
