trying to make an animation

trying to make an animation

trying to make an animation

ok, im using the FAQ to make an imageready animation and when I change one of my animation frames they all change with it. I want make on animation frame different then the other... therefore defeating the purpose of an animation in the first place. can someone please help me.... im a new user by the way.

RE: trying to make an animation

They key to getting the frames with the correct image objects is organize all your image components in different layers. That way when you are adding a new frame in your animation, you just turn on/off the layer/s for the desired objects. Does that make sense?

RE: trying to make an animation

im still kinda confused.... I have all the layers (4), and I have 4 frames made from the first one like said in the FAQ. Then when I reorder the second frames layers to change the visible layer it changes the first one too. I just need to know how to get around that, and the FAQ isnt telling me what to do. To put it into a short summary,' the visible layer of all 4 frames is changing when I reorder the layers of any one of my animation frames'. I dont understand why that happening. Also when you guys respond can you state it a little simpler for me... im no stranger to HTML and computers but I am to the world of photoshop and imageready. I know a bit about photoshop but very little about imageready. BTW thank you for taking the time to respond <3 <3 <3

RE: trying to make an animation

Hi again,
Spyderix's FAQ was very good. If you follow his instructions, you shouldn't be having a problem. It's not necessary to REORDER the layers. As you add frames to your animation, just turn ON or OFF the layers that you want to appear in that frame. Make sure you have that frame selected (it will be highlighted) when you are turning on or off the layers you desire.
