Students animated the melody of a jazz song using imagery inspired by Paul Klee from hand drawn and painted surfaces, making shapes in Photoshop and animating in After Effects. The final animation was given to our school's jazz band, under the direction of Patrick Bowen, without any audio and then interpreted by the students into a new song. The piece was projected during one of their performances and they played their composition live.

Learn the fundamentals of character design and how to teach amazing character animation projects.
This lesson plan will lead students to create an animation video clip using a combination of animation techniques and ADOBE applications.
This lesson teaches you how to use the Timeline function in Photoshop CS6 (the Animation Panel in Photoshop Extended CS5) to create an animation. It’s FUN! You load the drawings you’ve created for your animation into layers, load them into the Timeline and voila! An animation. It works well all on its own as a simple tool for creating animations or as a quick way to check your drawings for more complex animations. Explore and enjoy! THIS is empowering. My students are studying animation very specifically but - you could be creating an animation for virtually any subject. That is what makes this such a 21st century tool. It allows you to bring media literacy, digital literacy and visual literacy and storytelling into your classroom.
Will Adobe ever have a true 3d Animation software i.e. Maya, Blender?
Animating your content will make it come to life and creating animations is a core functionality of Adobe Flash Professional.

The purpose of this project is to create a simple animation using the timeline window in Photoshop. Using the provided PSD file, this project goes through the animation process, storyboarding, and exports the project as an MP4. It is intended to be a task that can be completed within a 60 min lesson if users have some familiarity with Photoshop. Please feel free to download the help documents to follow on. In completing the animation, this simple skill set can open the door to create more complex animations that will assist students to communicate their learning in a variety of subjects. Text, image, and shapes, can all be manipulated through the ordering and visibility of layers in the timeline. The animation for this film clip was created using these skills -GO VAN GO - 'All Riot on the Western Front *This process can also be followed to create an animated GIF. When exporting, select 'Save for Web (Legacy)'. You can then access the Looping Options under Animation.

This is a unit of work that some year 4 students (9 yo) worked on as part of a unit of work on 'mini worlds' (reptiles and amphibians). The students were instructed to make an animation explaining how the reptile or amphibian of their choice was able to survive in its environment. The program that is included was an initial draft that the final project developed from. In the draft program it shows a duration of 6 weeks although this is only due to the time allocated, it could be completed in a class in as little as two days with young students. (it is pretty easy and fun to do)
Intent: 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. The attached video is a take on those principles, applied to simple shapes. Like a cube. Animating on the Twos: Fundamentally, all anime today is produced at a rate of 24 frames per second. This is the same frame-rate used for most animation. For an animator, this means drawing 24 images for each second of animation. This can be time-consuming. To reduce the amount of drawing that needs to be done, many animations reuse images for multiple frames - rather than drawing 24 images for each second, they might draw just 12 or 8 images for each second, and then repeat each image for two or three consecutive frames. That is, one second of animation would look like the "twos" or "threes" row on the following schematic, in which each letter represents a different image and each column represents one frame: frame# 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 ones A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X twos A--A C--C E--E G--G I--I K--K M--M O--O Q--Q S--S U--U W--W threes A--A--A D--D--D G--G--G J--J--J M--M--M P--P--P S--S--S V--V--V As the schematic suggests, using 12 distinct images per second is called "shooting on twos" or "animating on twos", and likewise, using 8 distinct images per second is called "shooting on threes". Drawing a distinct image for each frame is "shooting on ones." (adapted from: http://anime.stackexchange.com/questions/15567/what-does-it-mean-for-animation-to-be-done-on-ones-or-on-twos) Task: Pat 1: Students are to Friday the 12 Principles of Animation under an Activity 2 title on their beHance Unit 1 project.

Animation is a powerful tool to use in the classroom, however many think that creating a simple animation can be very difficult. This PD should help those who are willing to try something new by creating two types of animations using the motion feature in Photoshop. I have had the opportunity to present this PD to a group of 24 adults recently. While the plan worked, one of the biggest challenges was the amount of time allowed for the session. By the time all the participants were ready to begin I lost 5 minutes which meant that an already tight session became more so, in terms of the time allocations. To overcome this the PD plan has been changed from one session to two sessions. Another challenge was that some of the participants did not bring their computer to the session which meant they had to work with another person. While this was not ideal it did allow for those with limited skills to work with participants with better skills. All the feedback provided by the participants was positive and I am looking forward to running this PD again in the future. The planning document has been changed to allow for the PD to run over two 45 minute sessions.
