week 14: Flash Pro FLASH CS4 PRO

Original FLASH Pro Exer. by Prof. Al to supplement the course.

This week the Course Packet and Demo files Introduces Flash Animation to you.
This is the week everyone waits for since animation seems to attract a lot of attention, (not always a good thing). You will learn about animation from an old Disney Frame by Frame standard to a more modern Tween by computer animation. No matter what, it will be fun!

The exercises also include a project on building an invisible button that can be used for just about anything that needs a hyperlink. The Demos teach you how to insert a Scrollpane and a Progress Bar for preloading content.

VoiceThread topic Week FOURTEEN: Animation is a very broad label for the activities you are getting into this week in Flash. Animation comes by duplicating and then moving individual elements on the stage, sometimes with Frame-by-Frame animation and sometimes with Motion or Shape Tween animation. Please discuss the differences between these and why you'd pick one type over the other. What part does Symbols play with Animation?
