Part of Lesson Plan: Animating Objects Programmatically-Animating an Analog Clock face: Part1
Activity Overview / Details
Guided Practice Introduction
The teacher will then guide the students through a step-by-step process of importing and instantiating the layers in the layerd Photoshop document.
As students work individually to follow the teacher, the teacher will then stop at various times and walk around the room, guiding and facilitating the students as they work the importing and instantiation process. After students complete this process, they will be asked to do the process over again, later in the lesson.
Guided Practice: Dialog
The teacher will then go on to say …
“The objects that we must instantiate are the hands of the clock itself. In the animation of the clock, we saw that each hand moved at its own pace.
To animate each hand (the hour, minute and second hand) we must provide a unique name for each hand."
Guided Practice: Step-By-Step Process
The teacher will guide the students through the following demonstration using the document resource "importing and instantiation"
Make sure the students save their work at this point!
Make sure students save their work after importing and instantiating. It is important that students know where they have saved their work, because they will be working with their Flash file over the next few days.
