Lets get started.
1. Open up your psp and
start a new image 200 x 200 transparent.Open up the
pencil in your animation shop.
2. Activate your text
tool and type out your name. Place it towards the bottom of your
canvas you will need room to add your pencil. Your size and
font type is up to you. This is what I have: Right click and
convert your vector to a layer.
3. Right click on your
name and click on copy merged.
4. Now go to animation
shop and right click and paste as a new animation.
5. Your name should now
be in animation and below it say F1 which means Frame 1.
6. Now look at the top
of your animation shop and see the button like I have below.
Its your duplicate button.
7. Click on it once and
look at your name, notice it is now duplicated and the frames now
say F1 and F2.
8. What you don't see it
like mine? Well then use the scroll bar on the bottom of your name
and you should see 2 now.
9. Okay hit that
duplicate button again you will have 3 name frames.
10. You can continue to
hit the duplicate button but it will eventually double your images
so rule of thumb is click on the last frame you duplicated it will
turn blue then hit your duplicate button until you get the desired
11. Since our pencil is
8 frames then our name has to be 8 frames to match it. Notice
the screen shots below and my duplicated name frames makes exactly
the same amount of frames for the animated pencil.
12. Now take your mouse
and click on your frames with the name in it to activate it.
13. Go to the top and
click on edit/select all.
14. Now click on your
frames with the pencil and go to edit/select all then edit copy.
15. Minimize your pencil
frame and click back on your frames with your names.
16. This step is
important every frame on your name frames need to be highlighted
blue for this step so don't click on any of the frames.
Instead take your mouse place it over F:1 and right click these
options will become available:
17. Now click on "Paste
into selected frame".
18. Notice that you see
the pencil attached to your mouse in frame 1 or F:1
19. Position your pencil
image above your name and left click when your happy with the
placement. Notice now that all the pencils show up matched
exactly frame for frame with your name and the cool thing is that
all the different pencil images followed as well.
20. Go to view/animation
and what you know a pencil is now moving above your name.
21. Go to file/save as
and name your animation.
22. After you place it
in your folder this box will come up. Let's optimize your gif
saves. Click on Customize.
23. Make your settings
the same as mine below:
24. Make your settings
again the same as mine below: The color is light gray.
Below I am going to show
you what happens if you don't match your frames exactly. Its
called blinking and this is how it looks
Notice on F8 or frame 8
that my name is missing notice the actual animation it is blinking
that's because the frames do not match each other.
1. Take the pencil animation and make your animation with 2 separate
