PTU Tutorial ♥ BCA Jose' Cano


Tube of Choice: I am using the beautiful tube of José which was a prepaid at SATC
Kit of Choice: I used: BCA by Disturbed Scraps which you can get at SATC
Animation I chose: BCA Roses by SophistSimone which you can get at SATC
Mask of Choice: I used WSL Mask 130
Font of Choice: I used Mr. Kenningbeck which is a PTU one


Ok...let's begin now ... Don't forget to save often!!

Open up psp and start a new image 800x800 white, 72 resolution, you can resize later.
Open up paper 8, edit, copy, go back to your blank image and edit paste as new layer. Go to layers, load mask from disk, find your mask, make sure the following has tick marks in it: source luminance, fit to canvas and hide all mask, then click load.Then right click on the black layer and click merge group. Your mask layer is done. Now to get the elements ready. Open up element 125, edit, copy and paste as a new layer, then rotate left 90 degrees and apply a drop shadow of choice. Now open up your tube and resize the way you want it to look and then duplicate it. Put one copy above the frame and one below the frame. Grab your free hand tool and select around the frame until it is all selected and highlighted. Make sure you are on the frame layer, then click on selections invert, go to the tube underneath the frame and click delete, then selections none. Now go to the tube layer above the frame and I usually just use my eraser tool and erase the bottom part of the frame. Now it should look like she is inside the frame and her head is out the top part.

Grab the following elements and resize as I have marked, add a drop shadow of choice:

Element 71 - No resizing
Element 65 - No resizing
Element 93 - 50%
Element 70 - 40%
Element 45 - 50%
Element 42 - 25%
Element 112 - 25%
Element 69 - 40%
Element 01 - 25%

Now that you have them resized we can put them on the tag, copy and paste as new layer the element 71 and paste it underneath the mask layer. Arrange it like mine. Now duplicate it and image flip, mirror and arrange it at the top like mine. Now above your top tube layer you want to copy, paste as new layer element 65, above that element 93, above that element 70, above 70 is element 45, above 45 is element 42, above 42 is element 112, above 112 is element 69, above 69 is element 1, above element 1 you want to place your copywrite information. Now all the layers are in the correct layer format. Now we are ready to be animating...  Ready . . . Set . . . Go . . .

Now copy and paste Element 001 into Animation Shop, now go under Effects, Image Effect and use the following setting: Make sure animation frame is ticked, effect length 1.8 sec, franes per second 11 fps, from the drop down menu choose "compress", then click ok. You will now have 20 frames, go and delete the first frame and minimize this animation for now in your window.

Go back to psp and close off all the layers. Now open just the following layers:
The white background, both element 71 layers, mask layer, both tube layers, frame layer and element 65 then copy merged, go to AS and paste as new animation. Now for this tutorial I opened up my BCA rose animation which was 19 frames and I selected all and rotated left 90 degrees. I then duplicated my image that I pasted over to have a total of 19 frames. Then I selected all the frames (Control A) so they were highlighed in blue and propagate paste the animation frames into my image files where I wanted it to be. Make sure you are on Frame 1 before you paste! Click view animation and it should be in all frames. Now do the same with the butterfly animation we made and put it in where I have mine on frame to the left. Don't forget to be saving in AS as well. I will save in MNG format in AS first as it gives better optimation and then resave in GIF format. Just a personal preference but it makes it look nicer!

Now back to PSP, close off the layers you had open, and open up these layers now:
Element 93 and Element 70, Copy Merged and take back to AS and propagate as before into all frames and place as I have mine (see above tag for reference), Then go back to psp and hide these layers, and open up these layers next: Element 45, 42, 112, 69, Copy Merged and take back to AS ad propagate as before into all frames and place as I have mine. Now all you need to do is go back to PSP and grab you copywrite layer and do the same with it and paste the same way back into AS. Just add your name and you tag is now complete!

View animation ~ Volila ~ All done!

Thank you for trying my tutorial!
