............................................................


Okay, let's get started.
Remember to save often!!!

Open my supplies and shift D
Close original

Paste tube
Re-size if needed

Move items where you like them
The sparkle for butt (lol) move that to bugs butt area 

Use my tag as guide if needed

Add any other elements of choice
or different text and colorize elements if using different tube

Just play around and make it the way you want it

Add name

Add copyright info

Once you have it how you like it then it's time to animate it

To Animate

On tube using selection tool - point to point
Select the jar area minus the lid 
Promote to layer

Now do same thing with the butt part of tube

So now in layers pallet your layers should be like this

promoted butt layer
sparkle for butt layer
promoted jar layer
tube layer

Close promoted butt, sparkle, and promoted jar layers

Copy Merge

Paste into AS

Go back to PSP

Open the 3 layers back up 

Change the opacity to all 3 to 15%

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after other layer

Go back to PSP

Move the opacity to 30% on all 3 layers 
(hint: change opacity on one layer and Ctl Y for other 2 then the % will be same and you don't have to keep trying to get same)

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after last frame

Go back to PSP

Move opacity to 60% on all 3 layers

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after last frame

Go back to PSP

Move opacity to 50% on all 3 layers

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after last frame

Go back to PSP

Move opacity to 35 on all 3 layers

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after last frame

Go back to PSP

Move opacity to 10 on all 3 layers

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after last frame

Go back to PSP

Close all 3 layers

Copy Merge

Paste into AS after last frame

Run animation and see if you like the way it looks

The % doesn't have to be exactly as I put just so long as you go up with all 3 layers and back down with all 3 layers gradually

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial!!!
