[Animation]Turning letters - Subarmy - 06-20-2006 07:48 PM

Hello, here's another animation-tutorial, this time i made it myself.

Here we go!

Start with a new document and type some text.

Then duplicate the layer 6 times.

When you did that, go to your first duplicate of the original text, and go to free transform (CTRL + T). In the menu of free transform, you should see something like: W:100,0%, see picture.

Change the 100,0 to 85,0% and click on the ok button.

Then go the the second duplicate, use free transform again, and change the W: 100,0% to 70,0%

It should look now something like this:

Ok, now go the the third duplicate of the original text layer, and change the 100,0% to 55,0%. Continue doing this untill you've done the 6th duplicate.

Now go to imageready and create 11 extra frames.
On frames 1-7 make every time 1 textlayer visible. From original to duplicate 6. Then from 8-11 make the textlayers "copy 5"-original visible.

If you now play the animation, it should look like your image is turning. Save optimized as to save as .gif. Here's my result:
