animate using 3 PNG images (front, back, and side of cartoon character)
on Dec 2, 2010 at 5:15:02 am

okay so there is this sour patch video contest and we are given 3 PNG images of a sour patch cartoon character (the back, the front, and the side). My question is, how do I animate the sour patch character using only these 3 images?
thanks

If you post the pix we could probably help you.

[Omar Itani] "we are given 3 PNG images of a sour patch cartoon character (the back, the front, and the side). My question is, how do I animate the sour patch character using only these 3 images?"

You could use these views as guides to model the character in 3D.

In 2D, you could cut them up with masks and animate in a JibJab/cutout style, or you could use a warping tool like After Effects's Puppet tool.

Either way, I don't think it's a job for Final Cut Pro.
