Chapter SIX. VIDEO INTO VECTORS DECONSTR... > STEP 05 creating reverse MOVEMENT

STEP 05 creating reverse MOVEMENT

The FeedRoom spot was designed for broadband viewers—still to ensure a steady stream, a looping animation is run while images and audio preload. In the loading sequence, a woman appears to walk in from the left while carrying a "Loading" sign above her head. She reaches center, holds for a moment and then walks off backward to the right. This animation, if it were to stand alone in its own movie, would consist of 32 frames of fluid motion—yet, it would only weigh 14k! The trick is that the animation—which is 32 frames—is really only made of 14 unique vector graphics. If you look closely, the figure's motion is mirrored from left to right. The second half of her walk is exactly the same as the first half—only it's in reverse.

Figure 06:12 shows an abbreviated version of the animation. The frames following the center frame (only three are depicted here) are simply a reverse of the first frames.
