Animation Exercise

Your first exercise/project in Adobe Animate is a series of four exercises to give you practice in using Tweens to animate objects in Animate. Below is the handout with instructions, and under that is a video of the 4 exercises.  Under the video is a screen shot of all of the settings you need to change whenever you create a new Actionscript 3.0 Animate file.



Adobe Animate - HD Settings

This Wednesday, you need to finish a 2-point perspective sketchbook.  We’ve talked a lot about it in class, but here are a few examples to help you out.  Remember these few points:

  • This drawing needs to be from real-life.  Not made-up, nor from some random picture on the internet.  Draw what you see, including windows, doors, planters.
  • You may take a photograph of your house and draw from that.  However, please print it out, because it is basically impossible to get a proper level of detail from a 4″ iPhone screen.  Printing it out in black and white might also help you see the shading/values a bit more, so this could be advantageous.
  • Remember, in 2-point perspective, both sides of the house are going away from you, so they are both going back to a vanishing point.
  • Also remember that the examples below, as well as the video, are just showing you the mechanics of how 2-point perspective works.  Do not copy these examples, or do what s in the video.  You are supposed to be drawing this from a real-life example.


Here is an old demo on how to get rid the of the green screen background in your images.  It looks a little different than what I showed you in class because it was done on a Macintosh computer, but everything is basically the same, and all the tools are in the same place.

In this demo, I go over different methods of manipulating objects, both individually, and as groups.

Organizing Objects in Adobe Illustator

In this demo, I go over how to “Arrange” your objects so that the correct one is on top:

In this video, I go over a few tips and tricks that will (hopefully) help you get better results in Adobe Illustrator.

Introduction to Illustrator

This is an old video, but it’s still a good introduction to Illustrator:
