Today in class we continued with tweening except instead of symbols and motion tweening we used shape tweening. We learnt to change a rectangle into a letter. We needed to convert the letter to a shape by going to Modify and the break apart. We also learnt to add sound. To add sound you go to windows then common library and chose a sound of your choice.

Today in class we learned about tweening in Flash MX. We also had a quiz on tweening. We had to make a ball bounce. While learning about tweening we learnt special effects on how to move one object to one side and then back to the other. We used special effects like different rotations. We also learnt that before tweening we need to make the object a symbol.

Flash Media

Today we had a substitute teacher. It was really quiet. W hadt to go on to a website called flash creations to do a tutorial about basic flash in macromedia flash MX. The tutorial was long and boring. I think Flash will be more interesting if Mr.Chiarelli explains it n we do stuff hands on.
