Export Settings for Animation

Here are the settings that you need to export your animation to in Adobe Media Encoder:

2D Animation Evaluation

Here is a digital copy of the evaluation for your 2D animation evaluation:

Websites are Online!

I have uploaded the websites from our last unit. Some people did not export them correctly, so I was not able to upload the proper files. If your name is not linked, it means that you did not export your site correctly. Click on the link below to open a new window that will show you your website, as it would look on the internet:

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.

Website and Logo Evaluations

The Website and Logos are due this Monday.  Along with that, this evaluation is also due on Monday.  Below are both a Word Doc and a PDF for your convenience!


Also, here is a video on the process of handing in your websites:


Website Analysis

In preparation for any design/project, we always look at artwork done by other artists. It isn’t any different with WebSites.

Below I have attached a link to a worksheet I want you to fill out for class on Friday. Follow the instructions on the worksheet, and answer the questions I have given you. You can either print the worksheet out and write in your answers, or you can type them directly into the Word version of the handout. Please note – you need to download the WORD document version of the handout in order to be able to type your answers in – the PDF will not allow you to do so very nicely, if at all. This handout is due on Monday, and you will not have classtime on Monday to finish it, so get it done this weekend if you don’t do it during class today. (The only reason why you might not do it today is if you are finishing up your Surrealism portrait.)

Also, start thinking about what kind of a website you would want to design. What product would you want to sell? It can be real or imagined. More information on Monday!

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.

Starting Your Digital Portrait

Once you are ready to start your digital portrait, follow the following procedure:

  1. Find your photos in your project hand-in folder
  2. Copy them into your MediaStudents folder
  3. Open Photoshop and select “File > New”
  4. Change the settings to a letter-sized image at 300 pixels/inch (see the image below)
  5. Chosse “Transparent” under Background Contents
  6. Under the Advanced section, click on the Color Profile, and change it to “Adobe RGB (1998)
  7. Click OK, and your new file will be created.  It will look like a really, really small checker board.
  8. In Photoshop, select “File > Open”
  9. Open your background image, and go to “Select > All”
  10. Now, go to “Edit > Copy”
  11. Close the background image, go into the new file you just created, and go “Edit > Paste”
  12. If the background image does not fill the new file (in other words, if it’s too small), you will need to find a new background image.  Do NOT try to scale it up.
  13. If the background is bigger than your new file, you can shrink it down by going to “Edit > Transform > Scale”  Make sure that you hold the SHIFT key down as you scale it so that you don’t squish your image.  To accept the transformation, click the check mark at the top, or double click in the middle of the image.
  14.  Go to “File > Save As” and save the file in your MediaStudents folder.  Name it “Portrait Project” and then your last name.
  15. Now, in Photoshop, go “File > Open”  Find and open your best portrait image.  You will probably need to open a few of them before you find the right one.
  16. This will open up a plug-in called Camera Raw.  On the right side of this plug-in, you can adjust the basic exposure to make the image a little better, if needed.  I’ll post a video on how to do basic image edits in Camera Raw.
  17. Once you have the image looking good, click “Open Image” in the bottom right-hand corner.
  18. When the image is finally in Photoshop, go “Select > All” again, and the “Edit > Copy”
  19. Close the portrait without saving it.
  20. Go to the new file (that should now have your background image in it), and go “Edit > Paste”
  21. Resize your portrait as necessary.
  22. Start using the Quick Selection tool, and then use the layer mask to get rid of the green screen.  Now you’re on your way to finishing your digital portrait!
