Following a number of requests I have created the following videos to describe one way of providing life to a still photograph.
The purpose of this video guide is to provide a simple workflow for animating a still photograph and thus creating a parallax, Ken Burns style, Super Slow-motion effect. This video guide explains the simple workflow from Photoshop to After Effects and utilises the following tools:
* Smart Selection Tool
* Content Aware Fill
* 3D Layers and Camera Movement
* The Puppet Tool
