aha its a pretty lazy process but hell yeah lets go
first up im using photoshop, so although the steps are probably pretty similar in other drawing programs, they might not transfer exactly like this
youll want to make three different layers at first, one for the message or writing youre trying to animate
then go ahead and write whatever you want on that first layer. THEN, set the opacity of that one to about thirty or so
, and on the layer right above it, just write the same thing right over the top of it. its alright if the lines dont match up EXACTLY, but youll obviously want to try to get it pretty close
do this once more, until three separate layers have the same message message written in mostly the same way
then theres probably a way around this, but i just bring it to image ready, where i can actually save it as a working gif
then the animation ! youll have one frame per layer, each one set at however fast youll want them to change - i usually set them at 0.2 but you can mess with it until it looks the way you want
THIS is what youre going to click to save it, instead of just save - otherwise it wont set it as an actual gif
you did it
II received a few asks about this and I gave some tips on m other tumblr recently so HERE!! Hope it helps!
THESE are not absolute rules of course and it’s best to work with real refs as well to see what works for you!
