Animating in Photoshop

came across a tutorial for animating in Photoshop so thought i would try it, what i like is when you set it up it works a lot like After Effects. What i like with animating in Photoshop as well that i didnt in Toon Boom is that i can get any line i want and it wont auto vectorise the line, which is why i wasn’t really happy with Toon Boom. Another good tip in the tutorial is that you can import video files, which i didnt know you could do in Photoshop, so if i wanted to draw over my animations to get the line work i can do that straight over the 3D rendered footage on a seperate layer or straight onto the frame.

here a just a couple of quick tests, the first is just my character drawn and then second is a render of my goldfish character that i’ve then drawn over the top of;
