I am building a small website through Squarespace to replace my old one. My home page is an image I drew, then traced into Adobe Illustrator, now I need to add color, I'll probably use Photoshop. When finished I will have some very simple parts of my illustration animated, like a shadow figure of a person moving, or a star moving across a screen for an example.
What's the best way to tackle this, as far as software? I imagine saving it as a gif then? I've done this but its been years and looking for the best and simplest route.
Thanks for your help in advance,
well, animate can create you're home page because it can publish html/js files.
or, if you want to integrate that animation into your home page a gif may be adequate, and animate can publish that too.
p.s. animate can also publish video, and after effects is designed to add effects to video.
Gifs are great. Just use them.
GIF, as others said, will work but it depends on how big/reponsive your site is and quality of the image/animation. Need to see your actual design I think.
