    FAST AND EASY JOB: I need help editing two simple 5-frame looped animations. I already made them myself but I have no experience so they are very jumpy and shaky. Attached below are the two animations in the form of GIFs so you can see. The first one depicts a tunnel road, the bottom part of it is fine but the top part is too jumpy. The second one is two escalators, one going up and the other going down. This one looks really bad and needs the most work. Basically I just need the movements to be smoother. I will send every frame as JPEGs to be edited and would like them sent back as JPEGs as well and preferably also as GIFs as a preview of the edited animation.
