When you download the exercise files for the marquee, we are going to have two folders inside of that download. The first one is the Art Templates folder; this is going to contain all of the source Photoshop and Illustrator files. We are going to be going into these files and creating slices and saving out artwork that we are going to use both for the content and for the overall template for the marquee. And inside of Final Project, these are all the files we are going to create throughout the course. We have an index.html file, which we previewed in the intro video. We have two folders inside of here. images has two additional folders: a photos folder which holds all of the photography in the background of the marquee; and the template directory, which contains all of the graphics used to create the overall structure and design.
And in the includes directory, we have a copy of jQuery. We also have a plug-in called farinspace, which gives us our image preloader which will allow us to preload the entire marquee before we start animating and creating the transitions. And we have the marquee.css and the marquee.js files. These are the two files we are going to create throughout the course. All of these files together will create the interactive marquee, and with that, in the first movie, we are going to start by creating our folder structure to become our project.
