Quicktime Transition


The author of this tutorial is Andre Villanueva.

In this tutorial, we are going to use AKVIS Sketch with Photoshop (CS4+) to easily create a QuickTime movie that starts out with a sketch and transitions to a full-color photo!

Materials needed:

  • Photoshop CS4+;
  • AKVIS Sketch (This tutorial assumes you have installed as a plug-in);
  • QuickTime plug-in;
  • A model photo.

  • Step 1. Start with a model photo.

  • Step 2. With that layer active, press +J (Mac) / Ctrl+J (Windows) to quickly make a duplicate. Name the duplicate layer “Sketch.”
  • Step 3. With the “Sketch” layer still active, go to Filter -> AKVIS -> Sketch.

  • Step 4. You will now be taken to the AKVIS Sketch interface. Use the handy presets drop-down to select some nice pre-configured settings. Don’t be afraid to fine-tune the settings. I chose AKVIS Default.

  • Step 5. Click the After tab. After a few moments of rendering, you will see how the image will look after the current settings are applied. If you are satisfied, click . If not, continue to tweak the settings.

  • Step 6. You will now be back in Photoshop, and the AKVIS Sketch filter will be applied to the “Sketch” layer.
  • Step 7. Let’s open up the Animation panel. Go to Window -> Animation.

  • Step 8. If the Animation is in Timeline mode, open up the panel menu and choose Convert to Frame Animation. You will see one frame, and the thumbnail should reflect the active “Sketch” layer.

  • Step 9. You will see a time delay setting below the frame. Make sure that is set to 0.1 sec. Also, on the bottom left of the Animation panel, the Loop setting should be set to Once.

  • Step 10. Click Duplicate Selected Frame to make your second frame. Toggle off the visibility icon to the left of the “Sketch” layer in the Layers panel. The second frame in the Animations panel should now reflect the original photo layer.

  • Step 12. A window will appear. Make sure to Tween With: Previous Frame. Set the Frames to Add: 10.

  • Step 13. You will see that 10 frames will be added in between the two initial frames, for a total of 12 frames.
  • Step 14. Go to File -> Export -> Render Video.

  • Step 15. Name your video, choose your save destination, leave the settings to default (unless you are an expert), and click Render.
