Animation Experiment – Puppet Warp

Once you’ve accepted keyframe interpolation gives you nothing but trouble you can surrender yourself to frame by frame animation. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to (re-)draw every frame of your animation. Photoshop is packed with tools to manipulate and distort your creations. These tools can be utilised to great extend when used on a frame by frame basis.

Based on my experience with the puppet-tool in After Effects, I decided the puppet-warp would be a good candidate to experiment with. While drinking my morning coffee; I “finger-painted” a crude flour-sack on my lap-top’s trackpad as the subject for my proof of concept.
