how can you put a movie or animation into a sig, with it moving, but have other parts that aren't moving
Well with each movement for animation I would chose 4 frames inbetween of sub movments . I would use 1.0 fps for most of it but have times where it speeds up and slows down. I would use adobe photo shop .
Make a background, then make layers , make each layer different .
Then select the animation tab in your tool bar at the top of your program, a small strip will open below. Select a frame, and look at the right of your screen, you will see your bg and a layer.
WAIT 1st chose your bg that will not be moving, then get the 1st image that will be moving cut it out and place it into the bg. Then to the right you will notice 2 frames .
Now that animation column I told you about will only have one frame select a frame in that column and then select the layers that you want to be in that frame from the column on the right hand side of your screen, to make more frames duplicate that frame in the animation column.
Then create more frames on the right side.
Here is a tut because I think you do not understand/wont understand this
This is a simplication of what you want to do
If you do not use adobe, I can not help you
He doesn't want to know how to create an animation, but how to put a video or an animation in a sig. For a video, you need to make sure it's in the right format (mov) and cropped, so you use only a few seconds from the video. Then, import it into imageready. For an animation, just open the animated gif in imageready. Once you have your video/animation in imageready, select frame 1 and then export it to photoshop. once in PS, make the canvas really big and create a new layer for your background (the part that's not moving). Position it so that your animation frames are in the right place and then crop it to size and add a border if you want. Make sure the background is behind all the other layers and then send it back to imageready and save it (save optimized as...). Voila.
k thanks i'll try that, yes i know how to make an animation, if you have see any of my previous avatars
