Hello, I would like to make some experimental animations with my artwork, similar to this artist Laleh Khorramian's Epic Animations | ART21 "New York Close Up" - YouTube (skip to 3 minutes in to see the actual animations). I’ve only been doing stop motion frame by frame and would like to import photos of my paintings and drawings and animate them digitally, which I think is what she is doing. Sorry, I don’t know all the terminology yet! But I know a little bit. I know the different between raster and vector.
I downloaded opentoonz first and yikes, it is too much for me. Synfig looks like a more reasonable learning curve.
Does it support transparency? Like, I can erase parts of the photos to make shapes and then animate those? Is it just for the actual animating, like, I will have to do all of the image preparation in something like photoshop and import png files?
Thank you for your time.
