Adobe flash, although dated, can still be used to make simple animations. Using Flash, i started to look at making a 15 second animation based around a tree that grew body parts, and eventually become alive. I started to work on this project knowing that I couldn’t use it for my final piece (because it had a narrative), but even so, I still wanted to be able to make more complex animations using the program.
Above is a picture of my animation mid way through. Using the “Onion Skin” tool, I was able to create certain shapes and strokes and locking them into place with the “Paste In Place” tool. I must admit I don’t like using flash player and I wont be using it to do much else apart from this current assignment.
