You would need to recreate the graphic, piece by piece, in order to animate it as you're describing, Chris. And it could be a pretty complicated process involving several tracks of video and keyframed animation. I'm guessing that type of work might be a bit beyond your skill level with the program at this time.
Most of the animated graphics you're describing from TV were created using After Effects, a program designed primarily for creating effects and animation. It can be a challenging program to learn, but ultimately the process of creating your animation would be much easier in it.
How much time and money do you want to put into this effect?
It might be simplest at this point to just cut this graphic into two or three pieces and then just animate it as two or three separate chunks.
Hi Steve. thanks for the reply, i kinda figured that it might need 'after effects'. I am still quite new to Elements, I've been putting up with windows movie maker fore years, but i am a very quick learner, from watching online tutorials, and i'm learning new things day after day. I've figured out how to make the discs with the teams badges on rotate on the spot with the 3D motion so i guess like you say its just a case of animating each step to appear from behind the others. the good thing is that as they are saved in a photoshop format i can save the process as a 'project' and the insert it into each highlight reel as needed and just change the original photoshop image and it will change the names, badges and scores in the new highlight video.
many thanks for the answer
