Advanced Projects

  1. Close the current Shelley movie and open a new movie.

  2. Draw some simple lines and shapes. Try changing the options, such as color, line style, and thickness. Select them and change their color, size, and styles with the Text tool. Use the Arrow to add curves to their edges. Use the Arrow with the Scale and Rotate options to further modify them.

  3. Create some text objects with different fonts, sizes, and colors. Don't forget to choose the menu option View→×Antialias Text!

  4. Practice selecting and deselecting objects with the Arrow pointer.

  5. Draw and modify several shapes and use the Edit→Undo option repeatedly to return them to their original state.

  6. Import various images of different types.

  7. Use the Arrow tool with the Scale option. Notice how imported raster images such as GIFs, JPEGs, and BMPs look very blurry when they are scaled.

You've created all the graphics for the basic page. Chapter 2, "Animating the Page," will show you how to animate the pieces of this page.
