Pre-Animation: Painless Tweening in Image Ready

Tweening is the process of automatically adding frames between two selected frames (called key frames) to create a designated number of steps of motion, opacity, or applied effects so that you can create a smooth, continuous animation sequence. The more key frames you have, the more control you will have over your animation's tweening.

Knowing what the final animation will be used for will help you to determine the speed and length of the animation sequence you are creating. Using more frames for tweening makes your animation not only smoother but also longer. It takes some practice to determine the correct number of tweened frames to add for each sequence, as well as the delay time that each frame is made visible. If you are creating an animation for a DV (digital video) or a QuickTime movie, it will be around 15-30 frames per second, depending on the final movie frame rate required.

Note: I usually choose to tween animations in ImageReady, rather than using After Effects, because I |

want to animate the layer styles or text effect shapes. Simply moving the Photoshop layers in After Effects ^^^

won't create the same effects.
