Animation from scratches

Post by c7aesa7r »

I would like to request help in a script/macro to create an animation from this file, a gif

Where the scratches are drawn gradually from top-right-down, 1,2,3,4, etc

Thank You for images (supporting the description) but I still can't grasp what you exactly need. Attach RAR containing manually made GIF, a result.

Do you want to make a GIF by script - programmatically reproduce manual process, or you want Photoshop script to paint scratches from scratch?

Loll, I asked the question and your answer doesn't help. I don't understand which of two scenarios you talk about.

I also don't know what you mean by original file. Is it PSD file with many layers which have to be used to create GIF?
