Gif Tutorial: Tween effect
It’s called tweening. It’s simple to do but complicated to explain. I’ll teach you how I did it on this gif:
If you don’t want to tween your gifs this is what it’ll look like normally:
Prepare your gif the way you normally would. This is what your animation timeline should look like, more or less.
Now what you’re going to do is
1. select the third last frame of the first gif in your layers and also on your animation timeline.
2. set its opacity to 75%
3. make sure the two following layers are not visible (meaning the little eyeballs are uncheck)
4. make sure the first layer of the second gif is visible
You’re going to do the same thing to the second last frame of your first gif only you’re going to set the opacity to 50% and you’re going to uncheck the first layer to your second gif and select the second layer. Like so:
And you’re going to the same thing to the third and final frame of your first gif only your going to set the opacity to 25% and uncheck the second layer and instead check the THIRD layer of your second gif.
At this point your gif will look like this:
You’ll notice that it looks a bit glitchy (it’s hard to tell on this gif since Damon doesn’t really move till later frames) when your second scene starts playing, but that’s only because the frames are repeating themselves. So what you’re going to do is delete the first three frames after your tween effect and then it should run smoothly.
And that’s basically how you tween. Sorry if it’s not that clear, like I said. Easy to do, hard to explain.
