September 28th: Assignment 1

FLASH

Log in to your D2L to see PDFs attachments for Introduction to Flash demo and Flash assignment 1 demo.

Today (Wednesday Sep 28th) we learned basic element of Flash and how to do the text animation like Young-Hae Chang. Next class will be a work day but I will do a 20 minutes lecture before work period. Here is the official assignment 1 in written form. If you are one of those who love detail instruction, this won’t help much. Why? Because I want you to THINK! creatively and be free. Just let go…stop worry about the grade and go crazy…be free. We will vote on deadline.

Assignment 1: Tiny (text) Dancers

We will learn it in a flash
No need to spend any cash

Check your blackboard

YOU
