View Full Version : quickest way to animate a sock puppet!

01-13-2008, 09:16 AM
Greetings! I have a project I'm working on in which I need to animate a sock puppet. I need to control the look of it pretty closely. The ideal thing is to do some sort of illustrator live trace on a video file. I want it to be vectorized with 3-4 layers, with some eyes and facial features I'll add on in flash. As far as I know, Illustrator can only work with 1 frame at a time, per file, which would be burdensome to say the least.

I suppose a similar idea would be the ipod silhouette effect, but on a sock puppet and with additional layers of highlight, midtone, & shadow. Is there an easy way to do this in flash? Let me know if you need any more information to clarify my problem. Thanks.
