Your First Animation!

Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to get to know Adobe Animate a bit by playing with some of the drawing tools and creating a pretty picture for me by using a variety of those tools. If not, what’s the hold up!?

Now it’s on to the fun stuff, where you actually get to make pictures move! The best and easiest way to get to know the program is to work through THIS TUTORIAL provided by Adobe. It asks you to create an Adobe account in order to download some assets that you can work with. If for some reason you don’t want to do that, you can always use your own scene and characters.

Again, the best way to work through these tutorials is to watch A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME. Do not sit and watch the whole video (or worse, all of the videos) and expect to know everything. That’s silly! Watch a few minutes, pause the video, and then go perform those same actions. Come back and watch a bit more and repeat.

You DO NOT have to hand in the video of the skateboarding apple, but it will be pretty obvious if you haven’t worked through the tutorials, so take the time to LEARN SOMETHING NEW!

Tell Mr. Robson what's on your mind!
