I am dyslectic and have a hard time understanding the written word (unless detailed with step by step instructions)so I really do learn by doing. If you could please help I would be forever grateful. This is what I want to do:
1. I have a animation that has 25 frames. The background is supposed to be transparent, however when inserted a little white around the edges shows through. I assume that in order to correct this I need to correct each frame? but I am having trouble doing so with my current software. Any suggestions, advice, tips, how too's?
2. Also is there an inexpensive beginner software that anyone could reccommend? I am very artistic and currently I am using Corel Draw 9 to create each frame, then Corel PhotoPaint to export each frame as a gif. I want to be able to create graphics, clip art and then animate them if I want without all the in between steps if possible. Has anyone heard of or used Xara products? Average price for this is $40. - $100. That's my ball park at the moment. I really don't need anything too sophisticated right now, I just want to learn the basics.
Looking forward to hearing any suggestions.
p.s. as far as assigning point to this question, to all of you experts it is probably easy, but for me very difficult so I am going to assign all 356 points, ok? ok!
