a lil snow animation tut

on Mon Jul 30, 2012 6:56 am
Im going to show you a technique I learned in making a signature with snowing effects.. although the snow effect in this tutorial is still not perfect. In the end of the tutorial I will just let you adjust the frames of the animation to achieve a better result.

Programs needed:
Adobe ImageReady
Adobe Photoshop (I'll be using Photoshop CS2)

Note: You need to have basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and ImageReady.


STEP 1:
First create a signature or just open an existing signature you made.. it's your choice.

I'm going to use this one:


STEP 2:
Create a new layer and fill it with black.

STEP 3:
Create another layer. Now use soft round brushes and start brushing on the layer you’ve created (Make the size vary from 5-16 depends on the size of your sig.)

My result:


STEP 4:
Duplicate it at least 3-4 times and rename it so ‘Snow 1-5’ or something like that so you can keep track of it easier



STEP 5:
Arrange all of the 'Snow Layers' to move down right or left like this.


STEP 6:
When you are done press Shift + Ctrl + M to access ImageReady or Click the image ready icon that looks like this -->

STEP 7:
Now in Image Ready.. If you don’t have the animation bar visisble like below then go to Window > Animation.


STEP 8:
If you have all your snow layers visible then turn them all off by clicking the eye. Only leave ‘snow1’ on.


STEP 9:
Turn the frame time to 0.1 seconds

STEP 10:
Create a new frame by clicking on the paper-like icon.
(Posted Image)

STEP 11:
Now go to the Layer tablet and hide ‘snow1’ and turn on ‘snow2’

STEP 12:
Click the Tween icon.


And use these settings:

then click OK

STEP 13:
Click on the last frame and duplicate another frame.

STEP 14:
Repeat Steps 11-12 (uncheck ‘snow2’ and turn on ‘snow3’ instead of 1 & 2) Do this for every Snow Layer, for me the last Snow Layer is the ‘snow4’

STEP 15:
Now go back to the last 3 frames and turn on ‘snow1’ on all of them, after that turn the opacity down to 15%

STEP 16:
Duplicate 2 more frames and turn off all the ‘snow Layers’ except ‘snow1’ on both frames

STEP 17:
Turn the opacity on the 2nd to last to 65% and the last frame to 75%.

STEP 18:
Go back to the 1st frame and uncheck the black filled layer and viola!

STEP 19:
Save your work and you're done!

If you follow the tutorial correctly then this will be the result:


Now if you're not satisfied with the animation it's upto you if you want to adjust the settings of the animation or maybe add more layers to achieve a more realistic or a better snow effect.

A summer of nothing to do really, and all of those breaks. I had more time when I was away from everything ^_^
