Spring 2014 – 49 – Final Animation

Thursday, May 7th, 2014


  • Produce a complete Flash animation that features the student’s original character.
Student-Friendly Objective:

  •  I can produce a complete Flash animation featuring my original character.

Video Link:

  • None. See video links attached to Lessons 35 – 44 for review.
Topics Discussed:
  • For a complete list of Topics Discussed, please see the previous lessons (35 – 44).


  • First, create a new 800 x 600 ActionScript 3.0 animation running at 30fps.
  • Use File -> Import -> Import to Stage to import your character’s front and side views to separate layers. Your characters should be imported to a single flash layer, and should appear as a group of symbols (the symbols you created in Illustrator in the previous lesson).
  • Using the Adobe Flash techniques studied in class, design a Flash animation using bone tweens and embedded animation to have your character “walk” onto the stage, perform some action, then leave the stage.
  • Your animation must be a minimum of 8 seconds long, without titles.
  • You may only use audio, images and text that you have created yourself. This includes music, artwork, photographs and animations. Anything you did not create yourself may not be used.
  • When your animation is complete, export it as a movie. See Mister Marmolejo for details on how to do this.
  • Turn the .fla Flash file and the exported .mov movie in to folder number “49 – Final Animation”.
  • All completed movies will be viewed at an in-class film festival on May 16th. Note: All seniors must present on the 16th.
  • You must have an 8-second movie to present on Friday, May 16th. Failure to do so will result in an “zero” on your final exam.

Do your best, and good luck!
