Working with animation techniques

Lesson Plan Published 3/14/14 Last updated on 11/25/19
Now that students understand the basics of animation, they can begin to get creative by using filmmaking techniques and animated characters to make their projects visually interesting and engaging. Use this activity to introduce how to create interesting visual effects and transitions using the Timeline, classic tweens, motion tweens, graphic filters and motion presets. Additionally teach your students how to create character animations using inverse kinematics and sprite sheets.
