In this course, author Dermot O' Connor introduces a variety of real-world issues that animators commonly encounter and offers practical solutions to them in Flash. The course covers how to apply gradients to create subtle texture and light characters, reducing the flat look of most cartoons; how to simulate natural phenomenon such as wind, fire, and clouds; how to mimic 3D space; and how to add fades and transitions to create custom cuts between scenes. The course also includes a look at staggers, which can be used to create camera shake, tremor effects, and extreme character reactions.
That's the end of the course. I hope these tips and tricks will be of use to you. I certainly wish I'd known about them when I was starting out in Flash almost 11 years ago. In my previous course, Flash CS5 Professional Character Animation, you'll see some of these same techniques applied in much greater detail. Again, thank you for following to the end of the course!
