This tutorial was translated with PSP2020 but it can also be made using other versions of PSP.
Since version PSP X4, Image>Mirror was replaced with Image>Flip Horizontal,
and Image>Flip with Image>Flip Vertical, there are some variables.
In versions X5 and X6, the functions have been improved by making available the Objects menu.
In the latest version X7 command Image>Mirror and Image>Flip returned, but with new differences.

If you want to realize the animation In the material I added a folder with gifs
which I made with the dice provided in the tutorial (Dobelsteenen folder).

If you want to create your own gifs, these are the steps I followed to create the animation.
After these instructions, you will find the ones to use ready-made gifs.

1. Open the wordart which will serve as a guide for the creation of the gif.
Duplicate it and work on the copy.

2. Open your dice and go to Edit>Copy.
Go back to your work and go to Edit>Paste as new layer.
Place the dice on top of the wordart.



3. Edit>Paste as new layer
(it is better not to duplicate the layer,
because by dint of rotating it, the quality of the tube deteriorates
and in the end the quality of the animation also deteriorates).
With your Pick Tool rotate the dice,
more or less like in the example
(keep in mind that in the end, the dice must give the impression of rolling along the wordart)



3. Repeat the step 3 to the bottom of the wordart;
this is my halfway path



For my example I "used" 19 dice, but it depends on your path.
for the black dice, infact, I only needed 18 dice.



Activate the layer of the wordart and press CANC on the keyboard.

(don't delete the layer, you will do it later, in Animation Shop)

Save your work in Animation Shop (*.psp)



4. Activate your work and go to Edit>Copy.
Open Animation Shop et Édition>Paste>Paste as new animation.
Edit>Duplicate, and repeat until you get an animation composed by 19 frames
(or your dice number)
Click on the first frame to select it and go to Edit>Select All.

5. Open in Animation Shop the animation you save at step 3.
Click on the first empty frame and press CANC on the keyboard.

Edit>Select All.
Edit>Copy.

6. Activate your work and go to Edit>Paste>Paste into selected frame.
Place the image as you made in PSP



7. Animation>Frame Properties and set to 25



Click on the last frame to select it
Animation>Frame Properties and set to 100



4. Check your result clicking on View and save as gif.



If you want to use one of my dice:

1. Copy your work.
Open Animation Shop and go to Edit>Paste>Paste as new image.

Edit>Duplicate, and repeat until you get an animation composed by 19 frames
(18 frames, if you want to use the black dice gif).
Click on the first frame to select it and go to Edit>Select All.

2. Open the choosen dice, for me the red dice.
Edit>Select All.
Edit>Copy.
Activate your work and go to Edit>Paste>Paste into selected frame.
Place the gif on the wordart.

Click on the last frame to select it.
