Hour 21. Advanced Animation Techniques > Conventional Techniques Applied

Conventional Techniques Applied

The information in this section isn't unique to Flash. It's years of traditional, conventional animator's techniques that we will apply to Flash. For each technique, we'll do an exercise.

Anticipation

The blinking technique mentioned earlier this hour is a form of anticipation, drawing the user's attention to something that's about to happen. We can use other forms of anticipation as well. For example, a car with a manual transmission that is stopped facing up a hill drifts back a little bit when it begins to move forward. We can accentuate that effect in our animations, and it will make them more effective. Not only will the user look at the object that's preparing to move (by moving in the opposite direction), but they'll anticipate that something's about to happen. Let's try it out in a task.
