Today we learned how to rotoscope and furthered our knowledge of Adobe Flash. Today we used motion tween, converted drawings to symbols, discovered how to insert pictures found on the internet and how to trace over them, and we inserted the mp3 songs we created earlier this week into our animations.
The 3rd day of the two week TechPrep camp! Today we learned more in depth about Adobe Flash and how to use layers, add frames, and create simple animations.
Day 2 of the two week TechPrep camp at Stony Brook! Today we were introduced to Adobe Flash and used this program to draw characters and backgrounds.

Today was tons of fun! We learned the ins and outs of Adobe Flash! We began working on our backgrounds and character designs today and will start the animation process tomorrow!
