Chapter 18. Animation and QuickTime

Chapter 18. Animation and QuickTime

I've described how you can use Adobe GoLive's dynamic HTML tools to position text and objects, (Chapter 12, "Layers and Positioning" ) and how actions can add interactivity to a page (Chapter 17, "Using Actions" ). Now, for the final piece of the DHTML puzzle: animation, the ability to cause objects to look as if they're moving within a Web page.

DHTML animation allows you to move layers (floating boxes, in GoLive-speak), change their dimensions and visibility, and rearrange them relative to one another by altering their stacking order. GoLive's TimeLine Editor allows you to build animations and configure their elements in ways similar to those used by video producers to combine images, sound, and effects.

This chapter also describes how you can use GoLive's built-in QuickTime Editor to create and edit video that you can use on your Web pages.

In this chapter, I cover:

  • Animation prerequisites

  • Using the TimeLine Editor

  • Setting up floating boxes for animation

  • Using the QuickTime Editor

  • QuickTime tracks
