Prototyping in Photoshop with the Animation tool

Playing around with Photoshop animation tools to prototype a quick test for a way to navigate around a site. I’m liking Photoshop more for this rather than after effects because of the lack of control I have - not spending time trying to get the tweaning right. Just quick and dirty.

Also, when I say quick and dirty, let’s be real. This took me about 2.5 hours, but the more I make them the faster I get. It’s about asset building and being experienced about where to set keyframes for the pace.

I know most of the movement in this isn’t natural (easy in, easy out), but for prototyping’s sake it gets the ideas across. Being messy keeps me from getting hung up on design options later because nothing is set yet (ie: looks like shit.) Let me know if you have any questions on using the animation tool!
