Homework 2 - Your First Animation
The purpose of this assignment is to experiment with creating vector, bitmapped, imported cast members in Director, and learn the basic animating techniques available in Director.Due: See Schedule
Assignment: Your first animation is really the excuse to learn well the software we will be using. Feel free to go beyond the required steps described below, so that you can get more experience with Director.
Open Director and create a new movie. Save your file as userName-basic-animation.dir in the appropriate directory (ps02 for this assignment). Of course, userName is your own user name on puma.
Make 4 cast members (some of them should be
vector objects while others should be bitmapped objects so you can
experiment with both).
Requirements: Create both bitmap and vector cast members. Use each of the following techniques, and be sure to experiment with them enough to understand them:
Among the things you could do in your animation:
To turn in your work, in your ps02 directory folder place youruserName-basic-animation.dir file. When you publish your work, it produces a separate userName-basic-animation.html file. Edit this file using a text processor. In the .html file add a couple of paragraphs explaining what you did and how you covered each of the requirements. Make sure you get the web permissions right so that you can see your work using a browser on the web!
In addition to how well you executed the assignment, you will be graded on how well you followed the specifications of the assignment, and whether you completed its Assessment questionnaire.
