Animation Principles in Flash 5 with Chris Casady is a workshop that contains movie-based tutorials and example files that you can try at your own pace. Understanding the mechanics of Flash 5 will allow anyone to create moving artwork, but that doesn't automatically make everyone a 'skilled' animator. This workshop covers the underlying principles of animation and how to add them to your Flash work. Chris begins with the simplest principles of animation like speed, timing, squash and stretch, anticipation, bounce, and gravity, then progresses into the analysis of physical effects and natural phenomena. Examples of Flash animation are broken down into single frames revealing what it takes to create realistic motion for sparks, drips, water, lightning, and explosions. 'Straight ahead' drawing is explained and demonstrated, and some of Chris's 'visual music' pieces are shown.
