I recently created a couple of six second Halloween gifs. Focusing on playful skeletons with plenty of lightning, the color palette is far more limited than last year’s spooky gifs.
I drew the assets in Adobe Illustrator, importing the Ai files into Adobe After Effects as compositions. The Fall leaves and bats were from last year’s Halloween assignment.
Rendering the comps as QuickTime movies, I imported into Adobe Photoshop and Saved for Web as gifs, checking forever on the Looping Options drop down. – Joe Gast
