As mentioned in class, your sketchbooks for January will be due Wed Feb 1.
Your assignment is to create a 10 second animation. If you would like, you can reuse components from you ball bounce for this assignment.
- plan out a storyboard for your animation scene. Since it is short, come up with a simple but engaging scene you want to show.
- 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.
I think some of you are still working on your ball bounce. You will have some more time at the end of class to work on it and hand it in.
We will be doing a short tutorial on tweening:
- classic tween
- shape tween
- motion tween
As usual, hand in your tutorial lesson to the server when done.
Create a minimum 5 second, Flash based, ball bouce animation.
- minimum of 5 seconds
- animate at the default of 12 frames per second
- your ball needs to be more complex than a simple circle. Use the 12 principles of animation to guide you.
- add in a complex background for this assignment
- you must have some simultaneous animation by creating a symbol within the scene (eg. a simple bird flying overhead)
- add a ball bounce sound effect to your animation.
When done, you must submit your original .FLA flash working file, and your .SWF executable. The assignment is due Wed Jan 18.
OK, we will review what we did in lesson 1, then we will do a short tutorial on:
Please download the following files:
On Monday, I will give you your first flash assignment.
Today we will be going over the very basics of flash 2D animation. We will do a short frame by frame animation lesson going over:
- Basic tools, pencil, shapes, paint bucket fill
- Timeline, creating keyframes
- Onion skinning
At the end of the lesson, please submit your .swf lesson file to the server for completion marks.
