I want to take an illustrated picture of a ship and animate it sailing around the water in the background with After Effects, is that possible? If so, what is the most efficient way of going about it? Thanks!
Hi accel world7,
Yes, it's absolutely possible, but we could use more info. How do you want it to look? Any screen shots or YouTube examples?

For the first image, I would like to animate the ship bouncing up and down the waves. For the second image, maybe just some animations of the sails getting blown.
I can't wrap my head around how I'd go about achieving this, thank you very much for your help!
Just basic keyframing - place the anchor point at the bottom of the ship, then move and rotate it it suitably. Watch some tutorilas.
I've watched the basic tutorials. If I just place an anchor point at the bottom of the ship and then rotate it, wouldn't that rotate the whole image?
