The 2D animation software craze continues apace with a growing number of new 2D games being released, and as a result the hardware makers are trying to make use of the potential of this technology.
In this article, we’re going to show you how to make a simple 2D animated movie with a few simple tools, and see how you can make the same thing with a 3D movie.
We’ll also cover how to turn a simple animated scene into something that looks even more interesting, as well as how to create a 2d film that looks almost like a video game.
First things first: You need a computer.
If you want to do this on a Mac or PC, you’ll need a Mac mini or newer with at least a 2GHz processor, at least 4GB of RAM, and either a 1GB or 2GB SSD.
The latter can be purchased at some online retailers.
If it’s not available, a Raspberry Pi computer will do.
For this article we’re only going to be using the free Adobe Photoshop CS3.
If this doesn’t work for you, or if you already have it, we’ve included the free version.
In addition, we’ll be using a free version of Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
If you’re familiar with the Mac software suite, you’re probably familiar with Photoshop’s “clip art” tool, which can be used to apply an image to a piece of art, then use that as a template for a 3d model.
If that doesn’t make sense to you, we highly recommend reading the full guide to creating art in Photoshop to learn more about what’s happening inside the application.
For the purposes of this tutorial, we want to create an animated movie, so we’ll go with a simple movie that’s easy to create, and has a pretty simple animation that’s not too difficult to make.
If we’re using a 3-D movie, we might want to start with something a bit more challenging.
So, let’s start with a more difficult example: the introduction scene of a new episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
To start, we need to import the two 3D models.
Open the File menu and choose Import 3D.
In the Inspector pane, click Add a new object.
Name it something you like, and click OK.
Next, in the Inspector window, click the Add a Selection tool.
Type in the title of your movie, the title for the episode, and the filename of the scene.
In our case, we have a file named “The Next Generation Intro.”
The Next Gen Intro.png.
Now we need an image for the scene to animate.
Open Image > Import 3d and choose the scene as the template.
In my case, I’ll be making a simple scene with a couple of small figures.
Click OK to save the file and start the process.
The scene is now animated.
Now that we have the scene, we can animate it using the 3D tool, as follows:Select the scene you just imported, and then click on the three dots in the middle of the Scene Inspector.
The 3D Inspector will appear, with the scene highlighted in green.
Right click the scene and choose Open with.
You’ll see a pop-up menu with options for a 2-D animation, a 3.5-D image, or a full 3D scene.

The 3D image in 3d, with a new scene.
We’re now ready to start using our animation software.
Open Animation > 3D and choose a 3DS Max animation.
You can also use a 3ds Max scene in the Scene menu, if you wish.
We can use a normal 3D animation to create this scene, which we can create by clicking on the 3 dots in our Scene Inspector:You can also animate a scene by using the 2D tool to draw shapes on the scene with the 3d tool, and by using it to create the 3-d effect by clicking and dragging on the layer with the 2d tool.
If using the normal 3ds, we’d like to make sure the scene is selected, so that we can draw the shapes.
Open Animation > 2D, and choose Create a 2 D Scene.
The 2d scene is marked as empty, but it can be filled with shapes by clicking the fill tool and dragging.
Now, we are ready to use Photoshop CS4 to create our movie.
Open the File Menu and choose Edit > Create a New Project.
In a few seconds, you should see the 3DS project opened.
Click on the Edit button, and you should be presented with a list of all the projects that you’ve created this month.
Choose the 3ds project, and check the box next to Create a 3 D Scene and then select the scene we
