FRAME BY FRAME ANIMATION USING FLASH
Adobe flash is created frame by frame, this simply means that you can insert a blank frame and then fill it up with an image or text. (Refer to page 123 of “Fundamentals of Computer Graphics & Spreadsheet)
To create a frame-by-frame animation, follow these steps:
- Create a new Flash document to work in.
- Create a blank keyframe for each frame you want to include in your animation. You can do this easily by clicking a frame and using the F7 shortcut key. Frames don’t have to be consecutive; you can leave space between keyframes to control the time that elapses between each one.
- Draw (or insert) a graphic for each state of your animation on the appropriate keyframes.
- If you are adding a background, to your work please endeavour to add a “Classic tween” to the background layer.
- Play back your animation by pressing Enter or Return.\
- Export your work as a “Movie” using .swf extension.
