12 Principles of Animation, with a cube...

Posted on Apr 30, 2014 by Ian Sayers Last Activity on Jun 3, 2014

The 12 basic principles of animation were developed by the ‘old men’ of Walt Disney Studios, amongst them Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, during the 1930s. Of course they weren’t old men at the time, but young men who were at the forefront of exciting discoveries that were contributing to the development of a new art form. These principles came as a result of reflection about their practice and through Disney’s desire to use animation to express character and personality. This is a great way to showcase Animation and explain the basic types of animation effects http://the12principles.tumblr.com/ http://www.centolodigiani.com/117722/3078861/work/the-illusion-of-life

This website is a great place to find contests that your students can participate in. Submitting work to a festival or contest I think is a great experience for students of all levels. Some of these contests could also be inspiration for a good class project or extra credit assignment. Graphic Competitions

A short course in Typography

Posted on Mar 4, 2014 by Matthew Miller Last Activity on Aug 29, 2014

A poster I developed for my graphics design classes, summarizing what I felt were the essential elements of typography I wanted easily reference-able.  If you feel there is anything I've missed that's essential, please let me know about it for consideration for inclusion in version 2. It may not be obvious from the thumbnail here, so I want to mention specifically that this is licensed CC-BY-SA, so feel free to use this in your courses, modify it, share it with others, and so on, subject only to the requirements to attribute me and share it in the same fashion (see the link if you're not sure what this means).

Physics in ActionScript with Nape

Posted on Feb 19, 2014 by Jean-Philippe Côté Last Activity on Feb 19, 2014

Nape is a lighter-weight 2D physics engine which will most likely satisfy all your needs while being much easier to use than Box2D. It is also usually faster than Box2D. It does have a few drawbacks but, overall, I highly recommend you try it out. During this tutorial, you will learn how to create the following very simple physics world. It comprises a floor (just below the bottom) and beach balls that bounce on it and each other.

Basic Math Cheat Sheet for ActionScript Programmers

Posted on Feb 19, 2014 by Jean-Philippe Côté Last Activity on May 24, 2014

My students do not necessarily have a strong background in mathematics. When the time comes for them to animate objects, pick out random values or manipulate hex colors using ActionScript, many are just overwhelmed. That’s why I put together this cheat sheet as a handout for them. It very briefly covers the following areas : Coordinates system (x, y)Angles (degrees, radians and the conversion between the two)Basic trigonometry for distance, angle and position calculationRandom number generationBinary and hexadecimal notationsColor manipulation (with binary arithmetic)Operator precedence & associativityModular arithmeticVectors (for movement calculation)

Building a Feathers Screen class

Posted on Nov 19, 2013 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Nov 19, 2013

This video demonstrates the construction and layout of a Feathers Screen class. The home screen of our application is rather simple. It includes a graphical title image and a little bit of text. We'll employ a scroll container to contain these items, followed by the objects themselves in the form of an image loader and a label.

Overview of Starling and Feathers

Posted on Nov 19, 2013 by Joseph Labrecque Last Activity on Nov 19, 2013

Starling and feathers are both GPU accelerated frameworks. Built upon Flash Player and AIR stage 3D technology. This recording serves as an overview of the relationship between stage 3D, starling, and feathers. Stage 3D is the name given to the new set of APIs in Flash Player 11 and AIR 3, which allowed GPU accelerated rendering of both 2D and 3D content. Note that working with Stage 3D is very different from working with the traditional display list.
