Ok so i have been setting up photoshop so i can animate in it like a typical traditional animation program and i am far from finished but this is quick test of what you could do in photoshop now with what i have
i have a few more scripts to write up before it finished and then it will be soooooo kool
The first two movies are just about working out timing
Line Clean Up
This one demonstrates how you can change line color
Typical painting functions - this a tough a cookie to crack - but for know you still have to do this by hand.
The shadow is merely the animation replaced, flipped and tweened across
These next few clips demonstrate how clearly Photoshop handles basic change of color and compositing this is all done inside of photoshop
Some other really cool things about all of this is that you can nest animated video clips inside of each other just like you can in Flash and in After Effects.
With Adobes non-destructive work flow the Photoshop Doc opens straight up into After Effects or Premiere with know need for rendering. Gotta love Adobe
Basic Color Change
Blue to green
Blue to brown
Dappled shadows light added with the ball passing through the dappled light into shadow - SOOOOOOOooooo much fun really how kool is this
Completed scene with background and foreground pics with masking - it all really fun stuff and pretty basic at this level
