Learning how to animate on Procreate can be a great project for parents of toddlers. If you ask most people, they would say that it is not possible for babies to learn how to have a moving cartoon while they are still inside the womb. But, animated frames can help babies and small children to develop their skills. In addition, animation can help you make the whole frame movements more realistic, thus making the activity more fun and entertaining. Here are some steps on how to animate on Procreate.
The very first step in learning how to animate on Procreate is to import images or any other type of animations into the program. You need to find them using the search bar of the platform, by clicking on the option ‘import from device.’ After locating the animations you want to use, you can choose which ones you would want to import. It is just a matter of selecting the folder containing the files you want to use and then double-clicking the ‘Open’ button on the GIFs.
After that, click on the ‘animation’ tab at the top of the screen. This will open the animation section where you can choose from various types of animations. Select the ones that you think would be best for your preschooler, and from there you can start playing with it by tapping the left corner of the screen.
The next step in learning how to animate on Procreate is to create a new project in the main menu, and name it ‘animation’. Click the arrow keys on the keyboard to drag the timeline from the right side of the main menu to the left. Dragging the timeline will cause it to scale to the current size of your baby’s head. Make sure that you do not drag the timeline too far to the left, as this might cause unwanted ‘jumping’ of the body from one position to another.
After you have finished dragging and dropping the animation, you need to place it where you want it to be. Tap the ‘renders’ icon to bring out the drawing tools in the sketchpad. Then click on the ‘frame’ tab to set the dimensions of the frame that you want your animation to be drawn at. Enter the dimensions after you have completed filling in the boxes, and then press the Enter key on your keyboard to accept the changes. Your animation should now begin to work!
After you have finished creating your animation, you can add it to your Procreate account by clicking on the ‘apseux’ icon at the bottom of the screen. Using theimate on Procreate is easy! All you have to do is select the chosen frame in the layers palette and then begin playing with it! It is a great way for you to explore what you can do with the functions of the Adobe After Effects training software.
