Slayer creation help please

Wave

i need a bit of help...

i have created my first slayer - i have two layers, the slayer hand and the object (yes, an eq Oops ). there's 2 animation slices in imageready, and the preview thing is perfect. the eq layer moves up and down in the customary slayer fashion, and it's spot on.

but i can't export the fucker properly - i get three images, one for each half of the hand and then the animated eq going up and down.

it's doing my nut in Mad

apologies to stacks - i just sent this as a pm but the tosser has gone offline. Teef


edit - .psd attached in zip. all help appreciated! Smile

Slices.

Dont make slices. Automatically saves them as seperate files.

I'm sorry... last night was my first try, so you'll have to spell it out Oops

So you need two layers, right?

Layer 1 = hand, layer 2 = eq

How do you make the eq jump about without having two animation slices?

Or are my terms confused, and you mean the hand is one slice (not layer) and the eq another? In which case, you need to save it all as one image (hand+eq) then chop the eq and animate that, right?

Baffled Oops


Thank you droid Kisskiss

I would have 3 layers

Layer 1: hand
Layer 2: Eq in one position
Layer 3: Eq in next position

Then I would have 2 animation frames:

1. Layer 1 and 2 ON, layer 3 OFF
2. Layer 1 and 3 ON, layer 2 OFF

Don't use slices at all - they are for chopping up websites foir HTML etc. Not for this kind of thing.

Getme?

I didnt save it - just deleted the slices and exported the gif.

Theres 3 different things at work here.

Layers - Stack Vertically with transparent backgrounds like animation cells - you can have as many as you like.

Frames - Only available in imageready. Allows you to constuct and preview your animation - each frame plays after the previous frame.

Slices - The little scalpel tool. Used to cut up images for web use. Works completely independently of layers and frames. If you have more than one slice in your file (the default is one) Imageready will automatically chop up your image when you save as 'image only' and screw up yer animated gif.

You can have as many layers and frames as you like - but no slices. Open up your psd in imageready, click on the scalpel tool and then your canvas and youll see your slices. Right click and go 'delete slice' till they are all gone. Save as image only - and there ya go.

Thought so too, but all the other slayers seem to be the same Baffled

I guess it's some very basic interpretation of the thing called "moshing" ... probably the closest you can get with an effects unit Roll
