Ahh class critiques tonight.
It’s that wonderful time when people
shit on provide feedback on your projects up for public display. My 3 hours of Flash experience showed, but class was very nice. In the end, I was glad I didn’t bite off more than I could chew, and I saw how using the shape tweens was a better choice than the motion tweens, which we’ll be learning and using in our next Flash project.
Some really great projects tonight, including a great animation of a vector drawn deer running through a photo of a forest. The guy who made it actually hand carved the trees in the photo to insert fore, middle, and background, and it was very very very cool. I’m starting to like Flash a lot, but wondering if it’s worth the $180 for a student discount license for the software on my home PC.
Hopefully, in the next project or two I can import some screen caps of some good old comic folks, maybe the Black Terror or Sky Man to make some low grade animations, like those old Marvel cartoons. These were great, comic panels with limited animation and dialog:
I’m partial to Iron Man’s intro myself…
