The final flash is really different then the idea that I first came out. I was planing to make a flash about basketball, then I realized that the whole story I will make is too long, so I changed my idea and made this wired video. I am not so satisfied with this one, but anyway I finished, so I am glad.
I am finally done!! This project was very challenging for me, even though this is beginners work. Making the wheels turn was the most challenging part for me. Once I figured it out, however, it was easy. I learned from this project how to use other resources to find information on how to do things in Flash. Using the internet and classroom peers were ways I problem solved. I would have liked to make headlights and taillights turn on, but after the tedious work I did to make the wheels turn and for the background color to change, I was finished.
I enjoyed this project , even though it was challenging. It made me use my resources and taught me how to use a new program. I would have liked to get more skills on how to use adobe flash in the beginning, but maybe that was the point to not give us any help.
so for my animation i decided to make a series of sharks swimming in the ocean. They arent colored but i kinda like it because of the contrast to the background.
I made a cat.
Note how the tail rotates a full 360°.
For my animation I decided to make a bowling alley. I thought it would be really hard and complex, but it was more of really small steps and a few obstacles. The biggest problem I had was figuring out how to make the bowling ball look realistic. At first it was just to figure out how to make it look 3-D and then after I figured out how to do it, I had the make the ball get smaller and smaller as it rolled down the lane. To fix the 3-D issue, I used a gradient and made the ball look brighter near one surface of the ball. To make the ball gradually get smaller, I added more keyframes in and just made the ball a little smaller at each keyframe. Making the bowling pins go flying was pretty simple because I just added a rotation to them. Overall, I am happy with the outcome of my project.

So for my flash animation thing i’m going to either do a little animation of a basketball player doing some dribble moves and then dunking or shooting or a game where you shoot baskets.
Wel, I not quite sure what i’m gonna make. The last time I used it was 5 years ago. But I think I’m gonna do a plant growing one in the field or garden maybe.
