Photoshop Animation Tutorial

Realistic clouds and waterfall video animation tutorial for Photoshop CS3 and above...

How to:
This tutorial is about how to add life to your photo by merging 1 photo and 2 video loops together.

You can always buy similar video loops from stock photo or video sites by searching the terms:"seamless clouds" or "clouds loop" or "cloudscape" etc.
If they are not seamless or too long, you can always use the classic After Effects fading in/out trick to make them seamless and short (~3-5 seconds)...

Would you like to try it?
Download all the original files used for the tutorial here: [link]
... and create you own animation!

As always: :+fav: is much appreciated : )

Special Thanks:
Thanks you all for the DD!
It is nice to finally have one in a different category,
specially when you get it for helping others...

That's awesome!
How did you make the animation go seamlessly and forever?
When I save my file As .mov it always stops. But I would like to upload it here and make it go for ever.

If I had to guess, I'd say that's achieved through Flash. Though I'm by no means skilled in it.

Sorry, I'm new to the PS CS - is this possible to create simple buttons (to jump to next and previous frame) here, like in Flash or Flash CS?
