I've made fire brushes and want them to change color and shape over time in the animation timeline for a movie sequence. I've made a separate layer for the fire, but can't figure out how to make it so that I can change the shape and colors over time on the timeline. This is a 10 second sequence. I'm trying to find info in the books I have as well as on the web, but so far no luck. Any would be greatly appreciated.
Shape – what gave you the idea you could animate the form of a shape in Photoshop (short of creating different Layers and making a Frame Animantion)?
Color – you could use a Hue/Satureation Adjustment Layer and animate its Transparency for example?
I figured out the way: to split layers and then apply the transformations with brushes, scale, etc. that works okay.
