Creating animation element from PSD

Ranco 7 years ago in By Screen / Design updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 4

When loading a PSD onto a page, it would be great if the builder would suggest for all layers with same name + incremental numbers to load them as animation element. Otherwise, the raw material for a page has to split to different PSDs and folders of PNG files. This way - an N pages book will be stored in N x PSD files

NameFrame001

NameFrame002

and so on, the files will be implemented like a frame element.

Perfect. Didn't know that. Just found the page explaining about PSD in the user's guide.

BTW, I can't find the corresponding page on the web-site. Is it still there somewhere?

It is important to maintain the user guide on the web, to be able to send a link to a colleague. 


thanks, but what does this have to do with the PSD naming convention guide?

You can access the same user guide as the one in IB3 at
