Creating Motion in Stills: How to Animate a Photo in Post (Part 2)

A couple of months ago, The Creators Project and post-processing guru Joe Fellows teamed up to show you how to turn stills into ’2.5D’ animated sequences. The tutorial was very popular on PetaPixel, but it left some with as many questions as answers, and so the duo are at it again, creating a part 2 that addresses the most common concerns. Read more…
