I was hunting around Photoshop CS and got into Image Ready and noticed that it does a whole lot more than prepare images into web sized files, including some features relating to animation.
Can anyone please tell me if Image Ready is a good choice of software to make animations and what sort of animation it can do?
I’m thinking of cell animation (hand drawn sequences like Disney cartoons or simpler Flintstone’s style), stop-motion clay-mation puppets filmed with a camcorder, perhaps using a blue screen to add scenery, or maybe manipulating photos to produce Monty Python style animations. How does Image Ready compare to software such as Painter or After Effects or Premiere Pro or Flash for making animations?
Can it capture frames from a camcorder connected to the computer? Are there any sources where I can find out more about this? Tutorials, articles, websites?
Thanks very much for any advice.

hmmmm…not really….its pretty much good for ani giffs. Director, Flash or GoLive is what you need to do fancier animations…those are the basics…then there are other fancier ani programs.

I could be wrong…..but from my experience image ready is only for very very simple ani’s.

It’s limited – good only for making animated GIFS. That’s a good thing when you MUST make images that will display without plugins or when they MUST have transparency. Of course, animated GIFs with a great deal of animation are usually much larger than, say Flash images.

Thanks, guys. I’ve been checking it out a bit and it does seem too limited to do any serious animation on it.

Image Ready can only make simple animated gifs. If you want to do more than that, try Macromedia Flash.

See ya
