For the past couple of weeks, I’ve finished two more additional animations for Texas Beyond History. One–Hueco Kids Discover–was started by another STA. During recreation, I found that some backgrounds and images were either not available or needed editing. Because Suloni walked me through the basics of Photoshop a couple of weeks before, I was able to recreate these missing elements myself.
The other animation I finished was Cabeza Lost. At this point, I have become comfortable with combining Photoshop and Canvasser to create these animations.
An unexpected obstacle came up when Canvasser and our folder permissions were changed while I was in the process of recreation. Because the structure of how Canvasser functioned changed, I had to look at the JSON code to see where the problem was. What I had trouble with was with the new ‘Import Images’ function of Canvasser, and when I looked in the JSON code, I found that the paths for these newly created images were not lining up with the paths of the old images.
In the end, I was able to work with Nick and Reuben to figure out the new system and finish the animation!
