Riker's very easy tutorial for animated snow sigs
: Get the rest of the sig done first.
: Make a new layer, then airbrush a white spot for the snow flake.
: Duplicate the current frame in the animation tab, then move the snow layer a bit.
: Repeat step 3 until the snow flake reaches the bottom.
: Play and observe the animation.
: Realise that the animation is jerky and sucks, thus deleting the whole animation while pulling hair out and randomly cussing, repeat step 3.
: When you're finally satisfied with the animation, congrats! Now for 5731246
more snow flakes to animate.
: Once the entire animation is completed (Yay!
), you realise the file size is over sig limit (No!
). Repeat the hair pulling and cussing stage.*
: Finally, sig is completed! If you can reach this step, then you can proudly proclaim yourself to be a animated sig masochist.
* Skip this step if your forum doesn't have a stringent sig limit.
