Animation

In our third ICT seminar we learnt how to animate using the program ‘Animate It’. Before this session, I hadn’t created an animation before so I was enthusiastic to learn something new.
We were given a variety of resources including plasticine, card, paper, feathers and googly eyes to create a scene for our animation. Our theme was ‘Under the Sea’ and from the materials we were able to make all sorts of ocean themed creatures, such as mermaids, whales and fish. We connected a camera to the computer and took a picture of our scene, we then moved each of the sea creatures around, taking a new picture after every slight movement. The program then allowed us to view all our pictures as a film, forming an animation.
