I think the only way to get the spinner (Image A) to spin at the center is make the spinner a square. You have the artboard a square but when you move the PNG, it does not move based on the artboard but on the center of the spinner. You will have to move one of the points to fit the edge of the artboard. For this, I made the right part fit to the bottom ...

If she gets into 3D work at all a dedicated graphics card would be handy. A built-in screen also comes with a known colour profile too. From there - does it need to be portable (15" Retina MacBookPro), or is a desktop OK (27" iMac)? Maxxing out memory is wise; buying a TimeMachine external backup disc is wiser. Software - Adobe CC, and think about Font ...

If the school recommends specific hardware and software, then that's what you should use. If they don't, then it doesn't really matter. Generically speaking, get the fastest laptop you can afford and max out the RAM and Hard Drive. But even the cheapest MacBook will likely be fine. As for software, Adobe Cloud Student Edition is likely all she needs. ...

It doesn't matter. Any Apple computer capable of running the current operating system (10.10 - Yosemite) will work just fine. Literally any OS10.10 system. Any specific model is fine - iMac, MacMini, MacPro, MackBook, MacBookPro -- any of them will work. By the time she's ready for something more (if she ever even needs more), the technology will merit an ...

Let us try to build an answer out of my comments. GIF has no real transparency, either a pixel is there or it is fully transparent. That is it has 1 bit transparency. This means you can not fade parts of a image into transparent. There is really no good workaround and there is no real alternative for GIF animations in this case. If you must, it is possible ...

That animation could have been done in many graphics program. I guess the one who made the animation did not create a motion path for a "blob" to follow since all off them look slightly different, instead he just created the shape with the pen tool(after effects) and then animate it across all the key frames. He can export it as a gif sequence and play it ...

There is no "save for web as an MP4" option in Photoshop. So your question is unclear. You can render the video, then use video software to duplicate it two more times and render again to a single file. (Premier, After Effects, as well as tons of shareware out there.) You can duplicate the animation two more times in Photoshop then render the video. That ...

Also make sure that the layer you are trying to move is a smart object and that you arent formally "transforming" it with the handles on the side but just moving it with the cursor.

Photoshop only allows you to keyframe the position, opacity, and style elements of a layer. If you're trying to animate the card from a standing position to a laying flat position (and you don't have access to any other software outside of Photoshop or Illustrator); you will need to create separate states of the image and then hide/show them in order to ...

Photoshop animation is strictly limited to these changes: Opacity Position Layer visibility perhaps some adjustment layer attributes None of the vector features have special attributes that can be animated beyond the above. Between each frame "state", all of the underlying layer bitmap contents and vector shapes are fundamentally unchanged. Tweening ...

You'll want to go and download Chris Green's Script Vertex to Point. Then depending on your object you can use that along with Null Objects and Pick Whips to achieve your desired effect. If your entire line is moving and you want it to track the entire line, not just a vertex then you could do it without the script just by using Null Objects and Pick Whip. ...

I faced i similar problem with getting the edge diffused edge you are looking for. You have the right idea with building your globe with separate layers, ie the ground, the clouds and an atmosphere layer. What I had to do was render the animation to after effects. When rendering the animation render a separate alpha channel. When you get into after effects ...

Essentially what you do is grab a screen video of the work, then convert those video frames to a gif image. As far as I'm aware, there's no "automatic" gif creation software for recording screen movies. Everything generates a video file. There are several apps which can use that video file to generate a gif though. This meta question may be relevant: How ...

Here are a few simple things you can do while in Illustrator to keep file size low: Merging as many shapes together as possible. Expanding paths if you must use a path instead of a shape. Reducing decimals places to 1. This is found in the advanced options in Illustrator when saving the image as an SVG. Don't preserve AI editing capabilities either. Avoid ...

There are a number of software suits that are used in the animation industry to assist in 2d animation. Two that are most commonly used and have been used by dozens of big animation studios including Disney and Nickelodeon are Toon Boom Animate and Anime Studio. Programs like this allow you to break up each model into individual parts - separate limbs and ...
