    Hi Dr. Del,

     

    This is an advanced level question, so I've moved your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum. I hope you find the answers you're looking for.

    In what Program? If you're referring to PS, you'd have to animate opacity of multiple layers representing the on and off states in the timeline...

    Maybe put text on a layer in muted color, then duplicate that layer several times and change the colors of individual characters to bright, highly saturated colors.  Apparently you know how to animate the visibility of the layers.

     

    My creative mind flowed from that into making 3D renderings with different setups for light sources on each layer.

     

    Sounds like a fun project.

    You can create various levels of "brightness," as has been suggested, and then can assemble those into a Flash production w/ Adobe Flash, or as an Animated GIF in PS, or other Animated GIF programs, or Import those intio a video-editing program, such as Adobe Premiere Elements, or Premiere Pro. For the latter, I would Save_As PSD, for each version, and Import those.

     

    One could also use Layers in PS, adjusting each one's Opacity (also suggested above), then by turning ON/OFF Visibility of the Layers, could output as Layer Comps, again using perhaps a video-editor.

     

    What is your final, intended delivery? That might dictate both the workflow, the technique used, and the choice of program, to assemble everything. That final delivery will also direct you as to the Image Size, that you work with.

     

    Good luck,

    PS - if you do decide to go with Flash, or one of the versions of Adobe Premiere, each of those programs has a very active, and helpful, forum, just for them. If Premiere (either version) comes into play, just post in the appropriate forum, and I will see you there, plus step you through doing what is basically "stop motion," with your PSD's.

    Dr. Del,

     

    Now tell us, did you get the Project done?

     

    Good luck,
