I would love to start to try & do something in the direction of these animated GIFS / pictures. The animators starts with a still illustration & brings it to life through motion & glow effects with a stunning result. Two different animators but similar styles. I know there is a plugin which I have which apples an impressionist effect with motion to any photo or video (many parameters to adjust), but would want to apply this to any illustration or picture which the first animator does as seen on his Instagram page.
Van Gogh Pluggin I have:
I've seen this done with the Liquify effect and a lot of time. You just move parts from a to b and then crossfade so it looks like it loops.
It takes a while.
Thanks for the reply, I would imagine it takes a ton of time and tweaking a long with cutting the image into the right layers you want.
