As an introduction to animation we will be using a free online animation program. Shapeshifter has a very simple interface and uses only 4 geometric shapes to create your animations. To get accustomed to the program you will be first required to create a bouncing ball. Below, you will find a video tutorial that can be used as a guide. You can also use the tutorial to see what the final bouncing ball should look like and then go it on your own!!
* You must create an account on aniboom for you to be able to save your work as the animations are saved online.
Once you have completed the bouncing ball project you will need to show me. I will then instruct you to the second part of the assignment (aprox. a 100 frame animation). Check out Mika D's aniboom projects here for some amazing examples of what you can do!
