Now, one of the advantages of a randomized animation is that it gives the user something that they can watch longer because they can predict what the animations can do. In addition, we're also going to be sensitive to responsive design techniques. We're going to set up our design to be responsive inside of Edge Animate, and we're also going to set up our script so that we don't generate stars outside of the width of the overall web window. So this means if we decrease the width of our web window, the stars that we generate are going to take up less space. So we're going to see, in this case, 150 stars be condensed into a smaller space, and then if we open the web window up even wider, we'll see that after a few seconds the stars will then begin to animate out and take up all of the available space.
So in addition to randomized stars and a responsive composition, we are also going to have the stars conform to the responsive design aspects of the composition as well. So I hope this course sounds interesting to you and if so, let's get started.
