May 8, 2012 - Have you just completed your masterpiece but don't know how to share it with the world? This tutorial covers. In the tutorial I used a Shape Tween to make an animated Gif. That would be very difficult to create in Photoshop. You saw in the video how quickly it could be created in Animate. Also if you want to create an animated Gif from an image series (Pict001.png, Pict002.png, Pict060.png), you could create in in less than 20 seconds in Animate. Hello stanthepianoman! I was searching around a bit and i found their 'software for videos' list on amazon, it's listed on their youtube channel. They use: Adobe illustrator cs6. Adobe after effects cs6. Avid pro tools 10. That's what is listed. Here is the link if you wan't to look for yourself: Amazon.de: Software for the videos.
Adobe Spark’s free online YouTube video intro maker helps you easily create your own custom YouTube intros in minutes, no design skills needed.
This article applies for Flash Professional CS6 and earlier versions only. For latest information about the Export Video functionality using Animate CC, see Exporting Video using Adobe Media Encoder.
With Animate (CS6 and earlier versions only), you can import or export video with encoded audio. Animate can import FLV video and export FLV or QuickTime (MOV). Use video with communications applications, such as video conferencing or files that contain screen-share encoded data exported from Adobe’s Media Server.
When you export video clips from Animate in FLV format with streaming audio, the Streaming Sound dialog box settings compress the audio.
Files in the FLV format are compressed with the Sorenson codec.
Right-click the FLV video clip in the Library panel.
Enter a name for the exported file. Select a location to save it to, click Save, and click OK.
Animate provides two methods of exporting Animate documents as QuickTime:

Exports a QuickTime file that can be distributed as streaming video, on a DVD, or used in a video editing application such as Adobe® Premiere Pro®. QuickTime export is intended for users who want to distribute Animate content, such as animation, in the QuickTime video format.
Be aware that the performance of the computer used to export QuickTime video may affect the quality of the video. If Animate is unable to export each frame, it will drop frames, resulting in poor video quality. If you encounter dropped frames, try using a faster computer with more memory or reduce the frames per second of the Animate document.
Creates an application with a Animate track in the same QuickTime format installed on your computer. This lets you combine the interactive features of Animate with the multimedia and video features of QuickTime in a single QuickTime 4 movie, which anyone with QuickTime 4 or later can view.
If you import a video clip (in any format) into a document as an embedded file, you can publish the document as a QuickTime movie. If you import a video clip in QuickTime format into a document as a linked file, you can also publish the document as a QuickTime movie.
Exports all layers in the Animate document as a single Animate track, unless the document contains an imported QuickTime movie. The imported QuickTime movie remains in QuickTime format in the exported application.
Specify settings for the QuickTime movie to export. By default, QuickTime export creates a movie file using the same dimensions as the source Animate document and exports the Animate document in its entirety. The Export QuickTime Video dialog box contains the following options:
The width and height in pixels for the frames of the QuickTime movie. You can specify only the width or the height; the other dimension is automatically set to maintain the aspect ratio of your original document. To set both the width and the height independently of each other, deselect Maintain Aspect Ratio.
If the dimensions of the video are particularly large (for example, 740 x 480 pixels), you may need to change the frame rate of the movie to avoid dropping frames.
The Dimensions option you set in the QuickTime Export Settings dialog is for the width and height of the FLA file exported as video. The dimensions you set in the QuickTime Settings dialog specify the size of the exported QuickTime movie. If you do not change the size in the later dialog, it remains as “current” so you do not need to change it.
Creates an alpha channel using the stage color. The alpha channel is encoded as a transparent track, letting you overlay the exported QuickTime movie on top of other content to alter the background color or scene.
To create a QuickTime video with an alpha channel, you must select a video Compression Type that supports 32-bit encoding with an alpha channel. Codecs that support this are Animation, PNG, Planar RGB, JPEG 2000, TIFF, or TGA. You must also select Million of Color+ from the Compressor/Depth setting. To set the compression type and color depth, click the Settings button in the Video category of the Movie Settings dialog box.
Exports the entire Animate document as a movie file.
The duration of the Animate document to export in hours:minutes:seconds:milliseconds.
Opens the advanced QuickTime settings dialog box. The Advanced settings let you specify custom QuickTime settings. In general, use the default QuickTime settings, as they provide optimal playback performance for most applications. To modify the QuickTime settings, see the documentation provided with Apple QuickTime Pro for information on the available video parameters.
Exports a document as a Windows video but discards any interactivity. Good for opening a Animate animation in a video-editing application. Because AVI is a bitmap-based format, documents that contain long or high-resolution animations can quickly become very large.
The Export Windows AVI dialog box has the following options:
Specifies a width and height, in pixels, for the frames of an AVI movie. Specify only the width or the height; the other dimension is automatically set to maintain the aspect ratio of your original document. To set both the width and the height, deselect Maintain Aspect Ratio.
Selects a color depth. Some applications do not yet support the Windows 32‑bpc image format. If this format presents problems, use the older 24‑bpc format.
Select standard AVI compression options.
Applies anti-aliasing to the exported AVI movie. Anti-aliasing produces a higher-quality bitmap image, but it can cause a halo of gray pixels to appear around images when placed over a colored background. Deselect if a halo appears.
Set the sample rate and size of the soundtrack, and whether to export in mono or stereo. The smaller the sample rate and size, the smaller the exported file, with a possible trade-off in sound quality.
Exports only the sound file of the current document to a single WAV file. You can specify the sound format of the new file.
To determine the sampling frequency, bit rate, and stereo or mono setting of the exported sound, select Sound Format. To exclude events sounds from the exported file, select Ignore Event Sounds.

Vyond’s built-in animation features allow professionals of all skill levels to create compelling videos. With a full library of customizable templates, it only takes a few minutes to begin creating engaging content.
Professional creators can take their Vyond videos a step further with advanced tools like Adobe Photoshop, Animate, and After Effects. With these tools, you can make Vyond objects appear to move faster with motion blur, incorporate Vyond characters or props into your logo with masking, and create dynamic enter and exit effects that are sure to add more excitement to your videos — to name a few examples.
While we continue to research and build advanced animation techniques into Vyond Studio, here are a few ways to enhance your Vyond videos with Adobe products.
A standard Adobe After Effects setting, motion blur, is how our eyes perceive motion. Wave your hand back and forth in front of your eyes and notice how blurry it is. This blur is what allows us to smoothly perceive movement. If you think about it in frames per second, the motion blur blends the movement in each frame together, making the motion continuous and smooth. Movement appears more realistic when there’s a blur on fast-moving subjects.
Here’s a Vyond example with motion and camera movement, but no motion blur:
Here’s the same example with motion blur added with Adobe After Effects:
See the difference? The cars in the foreground appear more closely to how your eyes would see them in real life.
How to add motion blur to your Vyond videos with After Effects
This effect can be achieved by more experienced video creators familiar with Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.
- Build your Vyond video (without the props you’ll add a motion blur to later) and export an HD version.
- Screenshot your Vyond props on a solid color background.
- Import your screenshot(s) into Photoshop (or another image editing application) and remove the background so the prop is now on a transparent layer.
- Save as a .psd (or .png with transparencies enabled).
- Import the transparent layered file and your Vyond video file into After Effects and add both to a new composition.
- Give the prop a motion path by keyframing its position, enable motion blur for the prop’s layer, then enable motion blur for the composition.
If you’re not quite sure how to do all that, but would like to give it a try, check out these tutorials on YouTube:
Masking is also a common After Effects tool. It works similarly to the masking function in Vyond Studio, but with more control. Like in Vyond, a mask can be used to show or hide part of a character or prop. However, in After Effects, you can draw a mask in any shape you’d like, use keyframes to change that shape over time, feather the edges, and lots more. Using a mask and motion path in After Effects is how we get characters and props to move inside the letters of our logo.
Here’s what creating a mask looks like in After Effects:

Transition and enter effects
Adobe Animate is another helpful tool you can use to enhance what’s available in Vyond Studio. Our animation team created these examples to demonstrate how custom transitions and enter effects can impact storytelling. In the examples below, the Vyond-only animation is on the left and the example on the right was enhanced in Adobe.
The first GIF has a default slide-up effect applied to it in Vyond. The second GIF has a custom bounce effect from Adobe. You can see that the house blocks look more alive because the animation adds anticipation and a sense of gravity.
Youtube Adobe Animate Frame Rate
In this scene, the bouncing wall effect (right image) increases interaction between the two assets and creates a more cautious feeling when the shark slides into the little fish. The simple Vyond slide effect (left image) has less tension.
Adobe Animate Basic Tutorial
When the chair drops (right image), its shakiness follows. This is called “follow through.” The follow through effect is more lively and realistic compared to a simple slide down effect (left image).
Adobe Animate Youtube Video
Here’s how these effects come together in one video:
Please note: While this video was created in Vyond, select props are not yet available to customers and several elements were enhanced with Adobe. We are not able to provide this video as a Vyond template.
The transition and enter effects above were inspired by the 12 principles of animation. Watch this video to learn more. Click here for an introductory tutorial on Adobe Animate.
