Week 25 – Shape Tween Animation – Learning Activity 7.1

“Use shape tween to create an animation in Flash, where geometrical shapes turns into your name.”

Shape Tween is a built-in feature in Adobe Flash, that allows you to execute the middle positions of an animation, from one extreme position to another.

Here’s my animation:

In this activity, I decided to have four extreme positions.
First keyframe – five circles.
Second keyframe – one rectangle
Third keyframe – name in small letters
Fourth keyframe – name in big letters.

I’m still pretty blank on adding these to my webpage. Suppose I’m in summer mode.
Will figure this out though.

Week 24 – Principles of shape – Learning Activity 6.1

“In this exercise, you shall create one Flash document, containing 5 scenes.

4 of the scenes will have to visualize and explain 4 of the principles of shape mentioned below:

  • Balance
  • Contrast
  • Motion
  • Proportion
  • Rhythm
  •  Harmony and dynamic
  • Unit and wholeness

Scene five has to be the index site/main page. This scene also has to contain four boxes, which will represent the four chosen principles of shape.

Whit action script, bring the five scenes together, creating buttons that will bring the user to each scene.
On each of the four scenes, there will also have to be a button that takes you back to the main page.

The finished scenes needs to be integrated in to an HTML and uploaded to the web server, where you will have to create a new file named flash.”

I’m having massive issues on this learning activity.
The creation of the scenes, and the work I have done in Flash has been no problem at all.
It’s the freakin’ uploading the web server that is wrecking my style totally.
Seems like my whole website has gone mental after I started adding the flash film to it.

My flash film doesn’t seem to be working at all when it’s published on my website: http://elevarbeid.webstudent.no/dmk1_nettstudier/marit_nilsen/

Also – my design has changed, and you have to click on “Forsiden”, to even get to the extra button called “Adobe Flash”.
I’ve clearly messed up the code, so I’m sitting here, like I’ve done AAAALL weekend, trying to fix it.
As I should have managed to do this by yesterday, I’ve chosen to publish my flash video on DeviantArt again, just to show that I’ve managed the Flash part of the exercise just fine:

It was quite alright to work with all these scenes in Flash. We’ve had loads of great online lessons, and as long as I kept my tongue straight in my mouth, and followed both them, and common sense, I managed to produce this no problem.

I am quite aware that it’s essential that I manage to upload this file to my webpage.

I’m going straight back on the task, so fingers crossed for me… 🙂
