Hi, I'm working on an animation in Adobe animate. I have drawn some bunting on it's own layer with just a single key frame. The bunting was drawn using shapes and hasn't been converted to an object. I've started trying to animate the bunting to make it look like it's blowing in the wind. However, the limited transformation tools in Animate mean this is very difficult. I want to take the bunting layer from the single starting frame and export it to photoshop so I can make the key frame transformations there and import those back into Animate for use in my animation. Is this possible? The tool I want to use in photoshop is the warp tool. In photoshop I can quickly select the bunting flag, including the pattern on it and click edit>transform>warp. Using this tool the transformation is so much more effective and takes no time at all.
Copy link to clipboard
you can click file>export>image which will export what's on stage and then you can open in ps and edit.
if you don't want everything on-stage at a particular frame, you can copy and paste layers/shapes/objects to a new animate document and then export.
p.s. animate has a warp tool that while similar, works differently from ps's.
Thank you, I had missed the asset warp tool- just what I needed. Exporting as an image is helpful to know too but keeping it all in Animate will make it a lot simpler. Thanks again!
