Summary

Although you didn't actually create any animations this hour, you did take a good look at animation. The concepts discussed in this hour, however, prepare you for the next few hours. In this hour you learned about familiar media such as television and film, including how persistence of vision gives the illusion of animation work.

As a part of this discussion, you learned several important terms, including frame rate, keyframes, and tweening. Frame rate is how fast Flash attempts to display the contents of each frame in sequence. Keyframes are where you establish what will be on the Stage 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 you practice during the next three hours.
