In PS I can use keyframes and the timeline option to move the position of a layer. Works great if I am just moving the basic position of the layer, but I would like to take a layer and have it rotate 360 degrees. I do not know how to do this using timeline animation. Is this possible and how?
Note: I know I could use frame animation and attempt it that way but I am looking for timeline animation. Also I am looking for solutions that work in CS5+
With the Photoshop CS6 Timeline Palette you create a video or frame animation and I think what you want to do is to create a frame animation not a video. Perhaps a video would be possible if you have the frame layers. Either way I think a simple action would be very useful in the process.
You could create an action that would dupe the current layer and rotate the new layer 10 degrees. After recording that action record a second action that plays the first action 35 times open the timeline palette use its the pull-down menu to select frame animation then click on that frame animation button to create a frame animation use the timeline palette's fly-out menu and select make frames from layers. Then use save for web and devices to save an animated gif.
Is CS6 what ypu ment with CS5+ ???
That is an idea and I will try that. Thanks for the information. What I meant about the CS5+ is I am uisng CS6 but i am also helping a friend who is using CS5 so the solution would need to work in CS5 and CS6 and yours does. One more question:
How do you record an action that will play another action? I cannot find how to do that.
