Adding texture colour to frames drawn in photoshop, animation
on Feb 17, 2017 at 10:53:21 am

Hi, so i've drawn a load of frames in photoshop, they're just limple line drawings, i've exported them all as png's and imported the sequence into after effects.

What i now want to do is fill each section the drawing with a different watercolour block texture, but that will follow the movement on to other frames. I've got the coloured blocks as seperate layers, but i can't work out how to create a mask so that each block is only showing the section that i want it to. I presume there is a way to do this with masks? Can anyone help?

If this textured fill isn't going to animate, you're better off doing it in Photoshop. It'll be a lot easier.

It will animate in that it will follow the animated shapes that i've already drawn. In the same way that the fill tool does! Theres no easy cheat? I was so sure there would be!

Sorry, no easy cheat for that in AE.

But I'm pretty sure there is in Photoshop -- what do they call it? A procedure? Something like that? It's an easily-repeatable set of actions for multiple images.

I have people who make my Photoshop stuff -- my personal experience with it stinks.
