Animation Running Man

In this blog post I shall be showing how I can animate within Adobe After Effect.

Start by opening a new composition.

Once that was done, I went to file then import file in order to transfer the images for my animation. Once imported I then dragged them on the background to start editing.

As my image of the man was hardly visible because of the background, I dealt with this by going into composition and then the composition settings to change the background colour.

I used an running cycle animation image to see the proportion of the running movement. I enlarged the image and held the ‘shift’ key in order to keep its original scale.

Using rulers to ensure the running movement isn’t out of the place, I placed the rulers by going to the view menu then clicking on show rulers.
