Flash Animation Scene Assignment

Your assignment is to create a 10 second animation. If you would like, you can reuse components from you ball bounce for this assignment.

  • You will need to have at least 2 different scenes (ie. different backgrounds)
  • Minimum of 10 seconds long using 12 frames per second.
  • There needs to be background music, feel free to use Garageband to create the music.
  • There needs to be at least 3 sound effects.
  • There needs to be an intro title screen (showing for 2 secs) that does not count towards the overall length of your animation.
  • Include at least 1 example of a classic tween, shape tween, and a motion tween.

Please submit your working .FLA file and the .SWF file, and submit it to the server.
