Layer Cycling Object

Hi, I've been reading the User Guide for ProAnimator. I don't understand what Layer Cycling does, or how Illustrator layers work to make this happen. Morphing Objects sounds cool, does anyone have video samples online to see Layer Cycling, or perhaps can someone explain what is supposed to happen and what the Illustrator layers do? Thank you, Donovan

Hi Donovan,

Check out this tutorial:

http://library.creativecow.net/articles/okerstrom_jon/layercycle.php

The concept is the same in Invigorator and in ProAnimator.

Think of it as an electronic version of cell animation - or flip book animation. The idea is that each layer of Illustrator is one frame of the animation. Create a series of Illustrator layers where the elements move or change shape and you can make them move or morph in 3D in ProAnimator.

Does this help?

Jon

Yes, that helps a lot. I'll go through the tutorial and will understand it even more. Thanks so much for your reply, Donovan
