How Best To Animate This?

I'd like to replicate this old animation opening from a quiz show back in the 1960's. I want to give it a clean HD upgrade. I don't really have any animation experience. With the particular style shown in the video, which program (Adobe Animate, Illustrator, Photoshop) would best the most efficient way to give it a try? I can do the panels moving and flipping in AE after the animation.

 

Thanks

This can be done in Animate.

 

The difficulty will come from your lack of knowledge of the software and experience with animation. Getting to a point where you actually know how to do it, will probably take more than a year, even if you just want to trace and flat color the original footage. And this is only for the software part. (Understanding how animation works takes longer, esp. when you are trying to figure out something done by another animator.)

 

What I'm trying to say is that re-creating such a seemingly simple opening, and making it look professional and worth the time spent on it, may be a very large and tiresome project, if you are just starting...

Thanks for your reply, Nick. I appreciate the insight. I realize that animation is an acquired skill and it doesn't come quickly. I just thought I'd get an idea from others as to which program to start with.

 

The only other similar thing I've done is an early version the show's opening that I did about a year ago (video link added), but that was shorter and simpler. For the 3 signs that come out of the boxes, I just used 3-4 png files of different proportions for the 'animation'. It's crude but worked for the most part. Of course the animation referenced in this thread is much more involved. As you said, it's not something that can be learned quickly. But in a way, doing these things as a hobby for the things we like (I'm a fan of the show) is a good way to learn the software.

Good luck, Dirk!

I agree. It can be rewarding to learn and spend time on the hobbies that we like.

As long as you have the patience and dedication, you will progress and get there.
