Better late than never, I wanted to share the second of my Halloween gif series. I built the assets in Adobe Illustrator (see below) and then brought the Ai file into Adobe After Effects as a composition. Some assets, the Fall leaves and flying bats were borrowed from my previous Halloween comp.
A six second loop, I rendered the comp as a QuickTime movie. I imported the movie into Adobe Photoshop and Saved for Web as a gif. (If you attempt, please check forever on the Looping Options drop down.) – Joe Gast
