Summary

Although we didn't actually create any animations this hour, we did look at a couple. The concepts we discussed, however, prepared us for the next few hours. We discussed familiar media like television and film, including how persistence of vision makes the illusion of animation work. This general discussion was applied to Flash in several of the terms we learned.

In particular, we discussed framerate, keyframes, and tweening. Framerate is how fast Flash attempts to display the contents of each frame in sequence. Keyframes are where you establish what will be onstage at a particular time. Finally, tweening is Flash's way of filling the spaces between keyframes. These three concepts (and many more) will become almost second nature as we practice during the next three hours.
