Lynda com Animation Tips and Tricks with Flash Professional-QUASAR

In Animation Tips and Tricks with Flash Professional author Dermot

O’ Connor introduces a variety of real-world issues that animators

commonly encounter and practical solutions to them in Flash. The

course covers how to apply gradients to create subtle texture and

light characters, reducing the flat look of most cartoons; how to

simulate natural phenomenon such as wind, fire, and clouds; how to

mimic 3D space; and how to add fades and transitions to create custom

cuts between scenes. The course also includes a look at staggers,

which can be used to create camera shake, tremor effects, and extreme

character reactions. Exercise files are included with the course.
