OK just finished my first homework (link above) for the Adobe Generation Animation in Flash course. I’ve learned about keyframes and how to do both motion-tweening and shape tweening and loads of other stuff.
It’s interesting to join this online course as a participant to get a sense of what it actually feels like. More significantly, its good to have the encouragement, resources and support to learn more about animation – and to do something. I do like the opportunity the course provides to meet professional animators every week – and all in the comfort of your own home at 7 p.m. each week. All three courses include access to tutors, working professionals, resources and an opportunity to see what other students are doing. Even if you don’t attend the course by enrolling you do have access to the recorded classes and the resources.
Of course, this is a piece of shameless promotion of my friends who are developing this programme – but I am genuinely exciting by it and this year it is even more professional.
