Flash Introduction

Previously i’ve never been able to get my head around using Adobe Flash, but in todays lesson we were introduced to it, which I surprisingly quickly learned from. We were told about using key frames to denote where actions start and stop, and also about shape tweens, which fill the gaps between key frames, to fill in the gaps of animation automatically, thus creating a smooth and nicely transitioning animation. We started by making a shape move and morph into a different one and move at the same time, then we used something simple like our name. We “Broke Apart” the word into individual letters on their own layers. Then we were left to edit how they’d be animated, and I ended up with various shapes morphing into the letters, then back, whilst changing colour and location. I also added a flashing background for extra randomness.
