Open the animations that was in your zip
supplies folder and select all frame on both of them. They have 18 frames each so duplicate the
animation till it has 18 frames also.
#12. Don't forget to put the tubes copyright
info on it.. Have the top layers in PSP showing and right click and COPY MERGED
over in animation shop.. duplicate the one
frame (top layers) till it has 18 frames...
On the bottom layers animation like
above...Click and hold the mouse button down on the animated trees
on F: 1 one drag over to the bkg layers and position
in the middle near bottom of circle to F: 1 of
the bottom background layers animation.. You might have to do this a few
times to get it all correct.. I know I did :)
After you put the trees on the new working
animation (above) Have all frames selected and click hold mouse button down and
drag F: 1 of the Snow animation
over to F: 1 of the bottom layers animation on
top of the trees. The top layers with the tube on it... duplicate till it
has 18 frames. Click , hold and drag F: 1 of the top layers
over to F: 1 the working animation. This is
done the same way as ALL MY ANIMATION tutorials.. over and over.. you
should have it down on how
and what to do!!!
Check your animation now.. if all looks right
Save as a GIF.. if you can see the snow below the frame then you didn't do it
correctly... UNDO and REDO
I had to do that once lol
If all looks well... you are done!!
