Animation Day 2: Alpha Channels

zeroToday’s essential question: How can I use alpha channels to create fade effects when animating in Adobe Flash?

Today we will complete a short tutorial. It will teach us how to fade an object.

If you have not yet shared the .swf file of the bouncing ball tutorial, please do so ASAP.

Today we will:

  • Complete the Ghost Dog Transparency tutorial. Save the image of the ghost dog from this blog post, or download your own image with a transparent background to use.
  • Upload both the flash and SWF files to our Google Drive Accounts
  • Share the files with Ms. Lawson
  • Write a few sentences on our blog summarizing any challenges you faced today, how you worked through those challenges, and how you currently feel about computer animation
