Hi guys, ready for some PixTeller magic to help you handle simple animation tasks? Then, here’s where you need to be!
My name is Alex and this time, we’ve decided to help you out with something that will blow your mind. Are you ready? Since so many of you are interested in making their own animations, say no more, because we’ve got you covered. Simply by starting from an image template, you can let your imagination run wild and make the best and funniest of animations. Here’s how you’ll learn to do it:
1. Step-by-step instructions (Oh, and they are easy to follow because we’ve got the pics to easily guide you).
2. The end result (To be proud of your creation).
3. Other animation templates (We’ve got the link, so you know what your options are).
1. Step-by-step instructions
First, I will go to My Designs and I will choose and use a premade design.
Once the Editor is opened, on your top-right, you’ll see a nice yellow button – the Animate Button. Click on it to switch the PixTeller Editor to Animation Mode.
Now, do you see the bottom of the Animation Editor? Great, because there you will find the timeline of each element of your design, including the background timeline.
Let's say we want a 4-second animation to be made. And it’s easy: you must simply move the last instance of each element on the four seconds mark. Click the instance and drag it in order to move.
Do you have them all on the same 4-second mark? Great!
Next, we want to set the starting and ending instances of each text element in the timeline. Why? To know at each millisecond where the element will be shown in the animation.
Remember: An animation is a motion created between 2 instances. To achieve this, we must create the instances. So, follow my lead!
The next step is to change the state of the text elements for the first and last instances.
But you know what? I want to also animate the image. How? By adding an instance on the middle of the timeline. On this instance, I will scale and reposition the image.
Want a short preview of the animation? On your left, click on the Play Button from the animation preview menu, and voila!
If you like what you see, click on Render and Save button (top right) and let's start spinning up the hamster to get the video ready to be downloaded. Yey!
Once the Render and Save process is done, you may continue editing the animation or you can click on the download button to preview the video. Easy-peasy, am I right?
Don’t forget that you can download your animation in MP4 or GIF format on any size you want. We want you to have options.
One last thing! Do you want to create another animation? Simply click USE button, make the changes in design, switch to animate mode and finally, click Render and Save. Don’t worry, the timeline properties will adjust accordingly.
2. Be proud of your creation!
