In image editing program i composed an image which looks something like this - human head, cow's body and chicken's legs
Now i want to make this creature walk and talk in Premiere Elements
I realize that i have to cut all body parts and save each part in a separate .png file and then recompose the image in Elements and then keyframe each body part at every single frame.
before embarking on this, just want to ask if there are some other techniques which would allow to animate my image in easier/less time consuming way?
using PrE 10 and GIMP
Actually, After Effects has a tool called the Puppet Tool that is designed for precisely this purpose.
Premiere Elements, however, is a basic video editor. It's not really made for creating this kind of animation, so it's liable to be a lot of work.
thank you Steve, now at least I know what software to use for this purpose
